Rumors surround the death of man at Bridgeport's "Vibes"

The body of a 29-year-old man was found in Bridgeport, Connecticut's Seaside Park, during the Gathering of the Vibes concert on July 26, 2009. Police received a tip saying that the body was dumped but a spokesperson for the city of Bridgeport said the death did not appear to be a homicide. The chief of police in Bridgeport said the death was "medically related."

After reading about the Vibes concert death, something struck me as 'odd.' Witnesses said when they woke up at sunrise, the body was there and everyone was talking about it. The police confirmed the death around 7:00 a.m. That's a good two hour lapse of time. I then read some of the comments made by people who were at the festival in our local newspapers following the AP's story. The rumor (found on the Norwalk News Online website) is that the 29-year-old man was "bloody," possibly beaten or murdered.

Very, very interesting. I guess we'll have to wait until the autopsy results and the name of the victim is released.
