FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) -

Florence police are investigating a suspicious death at a restaurant on Florence Boulevard.

Monday night, investigators said there was a suspicious death in the parking lot of Buffalo Wild Wings. Police said that around 11 p.m. they found a 64-year-old unresponsive man with trauma to the back of his head. He was taken to ECM Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities are treating the incident as foul play until an investigation can determine the manner of death. With no witnesses at the scene, police said their investigation is extremely challenging.

"We're having to put the pieces together; we don't have anybody to help us with this as of now," said Cliff Billingsley. "Our hearts and thoughts go out to the family and their loss, and we want to make sure that if foul play did happen, we're able to find out and bring the person to justice."

The victim hasn't been identified pending notification of the family. The man's body has been sent for an autopsy.
