NEWARK, Del. (AP) - Authorities in Delaware are identifying a man who was found dead inside a tent he built in a Newark motel room.

The Delaware State Police identified the man late Saturday as 34-year-old Matthew Ornstein of Chevy Chase, Maryland.

The Delaware State Police say Ornstein was found dead inside a tent he built on top of his bed in a room at the Days Inn on Churchman’s Road. Authorities say propane canisters were found inside the room, and an investigation determined Ornstein was using them as a lighting source inside the tent.

The Delaware State Police says Ornstein’s death does not appear to be suspicious in nature and foul play is not suspected. An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause and manner of Ornstein’s death.
