TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Police in Tulsa are investigating the death of a man whose body was found outside a house on the city's north side.

Detective Dave Walker told reporters that a neighbor found the man Saturday morning lying near a pickup truck outside the home. Authorities say the home was the scene of a recent fire and it's believed the man was working at the home and sleeping in the truck.

The man — whose name was not immediately released — was last seen about 5 p.m. Friday.

Police say the body will be sent to the state medical examiner's office in Tulsa to determine the cause and manner of death.
