The remains of Clifford Cannon, 55, of Dover, were found at 10:09 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10. Police say foul play is not suspected.

The Dover Police Department has identified the body of a 55-year-old man found in Tudor Industrial Park as Clifford Cannon of Dover.  

Department spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman said preliminary autopsy reports have determined no foul play in Cannon's death, but an exact cause of death is pending the results of toxicology come through in several weeks.  

"While we are limited on the information we can release publicly at this time, we are confident that the business park is safe and there is no threat to public safety based on the preliminary findings during the investigation," he said. "Businesses and activities in the park remain open and are safe to attend."

Hoffman said police received a call at 10:09 a.m. about a body laying on the ground between the wall of the Actor’s Attic, 540 Otis Drive and a cargo trailer on the property. Workers at a nearby business spotted the remains and called police, Hoffman said.

Officials from the state Division of Forensic Science arrived shortly after noon to take possession of the remains, and police and police cadets are taking statements and looking for surveillance video to aid in the investigation, he said.

Additional information will be released once the autopsy is complete, Hoffman said.
