Homicide Detectives are on scene after a body was discovered this morning on the side of the road in the 5600 block of Auburn Blvd.
Sacramento County Sheriff Sergeant Shaun Hampton says the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
"We believed this steamed from an assault that occurred earlier this morning," says Sergeant Hampton.
They believe the victim later fell in the Arcade Creek area by the road before the department arrived. They are currently interviewing witnesses and asking anyone with more information to contact them.
