The body of a man was found behind the Boatslip Resort in Provincetown, Mass., early Monday morning but police say there was no foul play involved in the incident, the Cape Cod Times reports.

Provincetown police Sgt. Gleen Enos said police were called to the Boatslip, one of PTown’s most popular gay hotels, around 6:40 a.m. after a body was discovered beneath the hotel’s deck. The piers on the beach that support the resort’s deck is commonly known as the "dick dock," and is a frequent late night hookup spot for gay men.

Police are currently investigating the incident but do not think foul play was involved. Enos said the man was found "well above the tide line," leading police to believe the body was not washed on the shore.

The man’s name is currently unknown but may be released later today. He is in his late 40s, Cape and Islands First Assistant District Attorney Michael Trudeau said.

It is currently Carnival Week, which is one of PTown’s biggest events.
