Deadhead left to die at hospital

By The Tribune-ReviewFriday, July 15, 2005

An autopsy will be conducted today on the body of a young man who was left at the emergency room entrance of Indiana Hospital.

State police said the unidentified white male, believed to be between 20 and 25 years of age, was dropped off at the emergency room entrance Thursday about 4:15 p.m. According to the police, three unknown persons in a green SUV left the man and then fled, but their actions were recorded on videotape.

The victim was about 5-feet, 10-inches tall, weighed 210 pounds and had brown eyes and brown hair, police said. Also, the man was wearing tan Arizona 3/4-length shorts and a tie-dyed T-shirt that read "Grateful Dead."
Chief Deputy Coroner Michael Baker said the man was in cardiopulmonary arrest upon arrival at the hospital and was pronounced dead at 4:30 p.m. Baker said there were no signs of trauma on the body and that he "strongly suspects" drugs were responsible for the death.

Anyone with information on the victim is asked to call the state police at 724-357-1960. Trooper Tim Lipniskis is the investigating officer.
