Exact cause of death not determined in dead body

CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

Cordele police don't believe a man found dead in a home last week was the victim of a crime.

Investigators still have not released the name as they wait for positive identification on the person found last Thursday afternoon in a vacant house on West 15th Avenue.

An initial autopsy report did not determine the exact cause of death but investigators say it indicates no foul play.

"We haven't completely ruled out foul play, but there wasn't anything indicative that shows any kinds of foul play that took place," said Det. Andrew Roufs.

Police say the body had been in the home for a while but they're not sure how long.
