EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Initial autopsy results haven’t explained what caused the death of a 24-year-old man whose body was found in the Eugene sewage system.

A police statement Wednesday said the medical examiner’s work isn’t finished, and a toxicology report is expected.

Noah Dewitt left the home of a friend in February at 2 a.m. The friend told officers Dewitt was in distress.

Maintenance workers found Dewitt’s body last week in what’s called a wet well, a closed vault in a lift station where sewage is pumped upward so it can flow by gravity toward a treatment plant. Officials said the vault is fed by a line 54 inches in diameter.

The police said Wednesday they are still investigating to determine how the body got into the system.
