Body at industrial site identified; cause of death sought
JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Authorities have identified a body found in an isolated industrial area in Pennsylvania but say more tests are needed to determine the cause of death.
The Cambria County coroner’s office says 58-year-old Geraldo Lopez was found dead Thursday morning by two workers in East Taylor Township location amid rock piles and conveyer belts on property owned by a scrap metal company
Coroner Jeff Lees says it’s unclear how the Johnstown man got to the location, since his vehicle was at home, no other car was around and the site is three or four miles off the main road.
Lees says there were no outward signs of trauma and an autopsy was inconclusive. He’s awaiting results of toxicology and microscopic tests.
