INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — A body found off 58th Avenue in a wooded area last week was identified by deputies as 55-year-old Paul Richard Asafaylo. No foul play was suspected in the man’s death, sheriff’s officials said.

Sheriff’s officials described Asafaylo as a homeless man who had been living in the woods for about two years. Asafaylo’s death was not considered suspicious, authorities said.

A person called 911 on Dec. 1 after finding Asafaylo’s remains near 58th Avenue Southwest and 1st Street Southwest in the southern part of the county, officials said. Asafaylo’s body was found near a homeless camp, deputies said.

It was unclear how long Asafaylo’s body had been in the area. The medical examiner’s office will determine Asafaylo’s cause of death pending toxicology results.
