Authorities are investigating the death of a man whose body was found Tuesday near the Encore Boston Harbor casino in Everett, but the victim’s passing isn’t considered suspicious, according to law enforcement officials.

David Procopio, a State Police spokesman, said via e-mail that the man’s body was discovered early Tuesday morning either on the edge of the Encore or “just off the property.”

Procopio referred additional questions to Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan’s office.

A spokesperson for Ryan said only that the man’s death is “not believed to be suspicious.”

In a separate statement, Encore extended condolences to the family of the deceased man.


“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends affected by this tragic incident,” the Encore statement said. “The Everett Police Department is actively investigating the incident and we are participating as needed.”

The investigation is ongoing.
