GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- Foul play does not appear to be involved in the death of a 44-year-old man found dead Sunday just south of the Flying J Travel Plaza in Grand Forks, police said Monday.

The man, identified by police Monday as Shane Keith Fried, 44, of New Dundee, Ontario, was found dead Sunday morning with "significant trauma."

Police ruled out foul play in Fried's death after finding no evidence of a second person at the scene, said Lt. Brett Johnson of the Grand Forks Police Department. A weapon was found at the scene and the person's injuries were consistent with something self-inflicted, Johnson said.

Fried's body was found Sunday morning by a man running with his dog in a grassy area south of the Flying J Travel Plaza parking lot.

Police said an autopsy by the Grand Forks County Coroner's office was planned, he said.
