WACO, Texas (KWTX) Officers flooded an East Waco neighborhood after a postal carrier discovered a blood trail leading to a home and a body late Thursday afternoon.

A witness told KWTX the postal carrier followed the blood trail from one house in the 1100 block of Turner Street to another home nearby where he found a man bleeding from a wound.

A police sergeant at the scene said the man's death was the result of an unspecified medical issue.

He said the unidentified man went to a neighbor's home for help, collapsed and died.

A covered body was visible on the porch of the second home, the witness said.

A police spokesman didn’t immediately return a call for comment.
