    Police: Man May Have Died During Theft
    Business Man Reports Body Monday To Police

    DETROIT -- The body of a man has been found on Detroit's east side, and police said they believe he died in the midst of trying to steal a valuable metal.

    The body was found near French Road and Harper Avenue.

    Police said the man appears to have been trying to steal copper from a power line when he was electrocuted and fell to the ground.

    Police said they're not sure when the man died but that a neighborhood businessman reported the body Monday afternoon.

    The body has not been identified but is described by police as a middle-aged black man who neighbors reported seeing riding his bike often in the area.

    Copper is probably worth more than he was per pound.
