Johannes H. Songdahl III, 22, was identified as the man found near Exit 10 on the Pike late Wednesday.

A 22-year-old Norwell man was identified Friday as the person whose body was discovered in westbound travel lanes on the Massachusetts Turnpike in Auburn late Wednesday.

Johannes H. Songdahl III was identified as the man found near Exit 10 on the Pike in what first responders initially believed was the result of a man being ejected from a car following a crash.

However, the circumstances surrounding Songdahl’s death remain under investigation by Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early III and State Police.
