Tisbury police discovered a body in woods on Hvoslef Way in Vineyard Haven early Monday morning, according to Lieutenant Eerik Meisner. Meisner could offer no further detail.

Tisbury Police immediately turned the matter over to the Massachusetts State Police. A State Police spokesman referred calls on the subject to the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office. A call to that office has not been returned.

A law enforcement source tells The Times no foul play is suspected in the man’s death.
