Update: A homeless man who had been reluctant to talk to police wrote the note:
I'm glad he did the right thing and still found a way to notify police of the body.<-- Watched one too many Hanna-Barbera "teenage detective" cartoons as a kid.

I'm glad he didn't just run away and pretend it wasn't there. I hope the police are being kind to him.Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

I hope so as well, after all, he could have just ignored what he saw for fear of getting in trouble himself.
Update: Previous description was incorrect; he is a white male.
