Authorities say a kindergarten pupil on his way to school in eastern Pennsylvania has found a body. Edwin Martinez tells The Morning Call in Allentown that his son discovered the body around 8 a.m. Thursday on the way to Franklin Elementary School.

Authorities have not yet said anything how the person may have died, but police have gone door to door to talk with residents and have blocked off a number of streets in the area.

An official from the Lehigh County district attorney's office and coroner Scott Grim were called to the scene.
