The body of an apparently homeless man was found Tuesday afternoon on the grounds of Lutherville Laboratory Elementary School. Police said later there were no signs of foul play.

Charles Herndon, a spokesman for the Baltimore County school system, said the school's principal sent a telephone message to all students' families informing them of the discovery of the body in bushes on the school's property, near its rear perimeter.

Herndon said counselors will be at the school on Wednesday to deal with any emotional fallout from the find.

Detective Cathy Batton, a spokeswoman for the county police, said officers had been dispatched at 2:37 p.m. to the school, at 1700 York Road, after a call about the body.

The man's name has not been released.
