They also told MiyVue.com mid-Friday morning that Hazel was a resident of Shadwell Housing which is not too far from where his body was found in Soho Village.
According to initial investigations, said the Police Public Relations Officer, the incident is believed to have taken place around 10:00pm Thursday night with police responding approximately 10:18pm, after being alerted by residents.
The PRO also indicated that though their investigations are still being carried out to officially determine the cause of death, they can confirm that Hazel was not shot, as some earlier reports had indicated.
It is likely that Hazel died from natural causes but this cannot be ascertained until the autopsy is performed on the body.
An official press statement is expected from the police early Friday afternoon, promised the PRO.
