Police responded at 1:05 p.m. to a call from a friend of the man. They found the body under the bridge near the 3600 block of Yakima Avenue.
The cause of death is unknown, Cool said, and the Pierce County Medical Examiner took custody of the body. Tacoma Police were investigating and interviewing possible witnesses.
