Investigators have identified a man found dead off the side of a road in Rindge.

They say the death of 20-year-old Brandon Chicklis, of Westminster, Massachusetts, is a homicide. The cause of death is being withheld pending further investigation.

The body was found off of Route 119 on Tuesday afternoon by a jogger. Chicklis was 20 to 40 feet from the roadside.

The attorney general's office says Chicklis' car was found at a supermarket parking lot in Rindge. Investigators believe he traveled from Westminster to Rindge between June 23 and June 25. They are seeking information on his activities on June 23.
