Live Boston reports crews removing tents from the Mass and Cass area or patrolling the area n Monday and Tuesday found two bodies.
Around 11:20 a.m. on Monday, Live Boston reports, crews removing tents outside 34 Newmarket Square found what they thought at first was just some wrapped up tarp - until they started moving it and uncovered a human hand. Inside the tarp and wrapped in several blankets, was the body of a 29 year-old man.
It appears the man died from a fentanyl overdose, a sadly common cause of death in the area, combined with exposure to the recently frigid temperatures.
Around 9 p.m. on Tuesday, EMTs and police found a second body, on Southampton Street, under a truck at a loading dock, possibly a victim of hypothermia.
