    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.

    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.
