Alhambra police responded to calls Sunday morning about a body lying beneath an overpass near the train tracks. There were no signs of foul play, and police say it looks like a suicide.

The death of a man whose body was found beneath an Atlantic Boulevard overpass Sunday morning is being investigated as a suicide, police said. 

According to the Pasadena Star-News, a passerby called 911 around 7 a.m. to report an unconscious man lying near the train tracks about 30 feet below the intersection of Atlantic Boulevard and Mission Road. 

That's according to Sergeant Kean Oda of the Alhambra police, who told the Star-News that the man was pronounced dead at the scene. 

There were no signs of foul play on Sunday morning, and police were treating the case as a suicide. But the investigation is ongoing, said Oda, and the official cause of death will be determined by a coroner's autopsy.

Police had not released the identity of the man, but did confirm that the body was not that of 35-year-old Stephen Ivens, the FBI agent who was reported missing on Friday and who has sparked the largest search that Burbank has seen in 20 years.
