The area is popular among "Pokemon Go" players, because there are several in-game hot spots in the area.

"The person who found the victim today was playing this Pokemon game, which led him to kind of an obscure spot in downtown Nashua," Giggi said.

It is the second time a body was reportedly found by a person playing "Pokemon Go." A teen playing in Riverton, Wyoming, found a body while attempted to track down a water Pokemon on July 8.
