The body was that of an outside contractor. A coworker of the deceased made the discovery. Here's more information, courtesy of the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

When asked if foul play was suspected, O'Hara said: "This is still an active investigation so I am unable to speculate whether or not foul play is a factor."

The Braves played their scheduled game against the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. The two teams are set to play again on Wednesday afternoon.
