LYNN, Mass. (AP) - Police say a person walking a dog found a burned body near a playground in Massachusetts.

Authorities say the body was discovered Thursday afternoon at the playground at Frey Park in Lynn.

The Essex district attorney's office says the death is considered suspicious, and State Police is assisting in the investigation.

Officials say identification of the body will take time due to the body's condition.
