The mobile phenomenon of Pokemon GO has spread across the country, but it brought horror to one player who came across a dead body in a public park.

Nashua Patch reports that a man searching for virtual Pokemon came across a deceased man floating in Salmon Brook at Rotary Park in downtown Nashua near a virtual "Pokestop." The body was discovered behind the Holocaust Memorial Thursday around 2 p.m.

An autopsy on the unidentified man is scheduled for Friday.

Pokemon GO has quickly become a major hit with players searching for virtual Pokemon in a real-world scavenger hunt. The craze has lead to accidents and even robbery as thousands of players wander the streets looking for the imaginary monsters.

A dead body was also found by a teenager in Wyoming who was also using the Pokemon GO app.
