A person was found dead this week at a storage facility in Milford, Massachusetts.
Police are investigating the case as an unattended death, the Worcester County District Attorney's Office said Wednesday.
Authorities were at the Beach Street storage facility for the better part of the day Wednesday, and police remained on scene early Thursday morning with crime tape up.
Joe Lahoud has been watching officers come and go from the storage facility from his pizza shop across the way.

"The way you see it now, it's very quiet. That's normally how you see it seven days a week the whole year, nothing happens," he said.
Lahoud said at first, he only noticed a few police cars, but that number continued to grow.
"You saw people going in and out of the storage units, so we figured, 'OK, something big is going on,'" he said.
