Pittsburgh police homicide detectives are investigating the discovery of a man's body on a hillside between Route 51 and Saw Mill Run Creek in the West End on Monday afternoon.

Police said about 5:30 p.m. hikers walking along a trail flagged down a police officer after finding a body lying face down on the hillside. Rescuers were called to retrieve the body from a steep incline.

Route 51 South was reduced to one lane during the investigation and recovery efforts, police said. All lanes have since reopened.

The unidentified man's body was taken to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.
