HAMILTON, Mont. (AP) - Police in Hamilton have released the name of a man who was found dead by officers responding to a reported disturbance, but the man’s cause of death is still under investigation.

Police Chief Ryan Oster says 25-year-old Robert L. Thaut of Hamilton died Tuesday night. Oster says he’s still waiting for information from the autopsy to confirm the cause of death.

Two other people who were at the house - Richard Sullivan and his wife Candace Sullivan - were taken into custody Wednesday.

They were charged in October with felony criminal endangerment after prosecutors said they were smoking meth while caring for a child. They were released on their own recognizance, but that release was revoked Wednesday for violating conditions that they not use drugs or alcohol.

No charges have been filed in Thaut’s death.
