COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- Police are investigating after a man was found dead inside a freezer at a Georgia stadium, according to WSB-TV.

According to authorities, the person is a third-party contractor who was found dead inside a walk-in beer cooler at SunTrust Park around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Authorities said it’s too early to determine whether or not foul play was involved. Police believe the man showed up for work earlier in the day for an overnight shift.

The circumstances surrounding the death are unclear at this time. The man was found just hours before the Braves took on the Cincinnati Reds at the ballpark.
