NEWPORT, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say a 70-year old man died on a fishing trip in the Pacific Ocean.

The fishing vessel Carolyn Ruth arrived at the Coast Guard station in Newport with the body of Eugene Compton of Charleston, Oregon.

The captain of the boat told investigators that Compton wasn’t feeling well when he went to bed Saturday. Compton got up sometime during the night, and the captain found him dead Sunday morning.

Police said Monday that Compton appears to have died from natural causes, but the investigation continues with help from the Lincoln County medical examiner.
