GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ-TV) - We now know the identity of the body found yesterday on the Greenway.

It was Wednesday when a female walker here on a trail near the Red River discovered a body in the woods right over there. Police say it was 40-year-old Erik Shulind.

Police believe he died sometime Wednesday afternoon. We know his Facebook profile picture was updated just after 12:30 Wednesday. Police think he may have died moments after that update.

His friends and family are using social media to grieve, one friend saying, "I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the news."

Police remain tight-lipped about what happened but say there's no threat to the public.

“This one is not related to the other incidents that have happened in the Greenway recently,” said Lt. Brett Johnson of GFPD. “This is an isolated incident.”

Again police will not say exactly how Shulind died, but again say there are no safety threats to the public.
