Hometown man dies in OL park

  The body of a 56-year-old Hometown man was discovered Tuesday morning near a park bench in Lewandowski Park near 89th Street and 49th Court, according to police.
  Oak Lawn police officers and paramedics responding to the report of an unresponsive man in the park behind Fairplay Foods discovered the man at 8:48 a.m., police said.
  No signs of foul play were evident, and Oak Lawn police Division Chief Thomas Simon said it appears the man had been out walking or exercising before his death.
  The man’s body was transported to the Cook County medical examiner’s office at about 11 a.m. that morning. Jamie Giller, an investigator with the examiner’s office, said results from the autopsy were scheduled to be complete around 2 p.m. July 31.
