IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Irondequoit Police Department is investigating what they're calling a suspicious death near Helendale Road on Saturday. 

Irondequoit Police responded around 3:15 p.m. to the 400 block of Helendale Road after a deceased individual was located in the area. 

A police helicopter had been flying over the area on Friday during a search for a missing man from Brighton, and police from Brighton were on the scene on Saturday, but there is no word on if the incident is related to that case. 

Investigators from the Irondequoit Police Department and the New York State Police are currently interviewing witnesses and persons of interest related to the case. 

The Monroe County Medical Examiner’s Office is working with investigators from both agencies to determine the cause of death and to identify the victim.  

Police told News10NBC that this incident is not related to the suspicious death of a 73-year-old man on Culver Road that occurred early Saturday morning. 

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call 911.
