FARMINGTON — Farmington police are investigating the death of a man found Monday morning along West Broadway Avenue. 

Darrel Tsosie, 48, of Farmington, has been identified as the man found dead in the 400 block of West Broadway Avenue, according to Farmington Police Department spokeswoman Georgette Allen. She said the man was originally from Tohatchi. 

An employee of one of the businesses called police about a body found lying between buildings around 8:30 a.m. Monday, Allen said. 

Nothing appeared to be suspicious about Tsosie's death but police are still investigating the case, according to Allen.

Police are waiting for a report from the New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator to determine the cause of death.
