The body of a worker was found in the freezer at Sun Trust Park home of the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday afternoon

Authorities responded to SunTrust Park Tuesday afternoon after a body was found inside a beer cooler. Both are said to work for a third-party contractor at the stadium.

"This is still an active investigation", O'Hara said.

Investigators are working to determine the nature of the person's death.

Cobb County police spokeswoman Sarah O'Hara told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution she could not say if foul play was suspected because the investigation was ongoing.

The Braves declined comment, referring reporters to the statement from Cobb County police.

Police told WSB-TV they believed the man had arrived earlier for an overnight shift.

No word on if this will impact any services during Tuesday night's game against the Cincinnati Reds.

"I wasn't aware. there were plenty of police here".
