A body found in Monroe County has prompted officials to launch an investigation. 

Officials say they found an unresponsive man around 12:40 a.m.  Sunday outside a vehicle on School House Road in Middle Smithfield Township, at the entrance to the State Game Lands.

Numerous attempts to revive the man failed. He was transported to Pocono Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead. Officials identify him as 54-year-old Scott Schreck of East Stroudsburg.

Police have not said if they suspect foul play, but an investigation is on-going.
