Ithaca, N.Y. — The Ithaca Police Department has identified the man found dead in a ditch near Walmart on Tuesday.

Peter Felko, 20, of Cortland, was found submerged in about a foot of water, according to police.

Officer Jamie Williamson said in a news release that Felko resides in Cortland “but also has ties to the Ithaca area.”

“The autopsy and toxicology examination have yet to be completed,” a statement said. “Police investigators do not believe that foul play is involved.

Ithaca police responded to an access road that leads from Elmira Road to Fairgrounds Memorial Parkway around 8:42 a.m. on Tuesday.
