LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Lexington police are trying to figure out how a man whose body was found inside a truck died.

Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn says the death of 33-year-old Barry Slaven of Harrodsburg was initially considered a homicide, but what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the head was actually a cyst that ruptured and hemorrhaged.

Media outlets report the body was found Tuesday inside a Penske box truck in eastern Lexington.

Ginn says Slaven’s cause of death is still pending. Toxicology results will not be available for four to six weeks.

Slaven’s family says he had been missing since Sunday, and that they had filed a missing persons’ report with police.
