ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers released more information about a Nevada man who died after being found unresponsive at a southeast Alaska logging site.

Spokeswoman Beth Ipsen says in an email 55-year-old David Fussell of Stagecoach, Nevada, was found alive but unresponsive by co-workers on Zarembo Island, 12 miles west of Wrangell.

The co-workers unsuccessfully attempted CPR after finding him in the passenger seat of a pickup late Tuesday afternoon.

Ipsen says the body has been sent to Anchorage for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

She says there were no obvious signs of foul play or anything that pointed to the death being related to a specific logging incident.

Ipsen says Fussell was an employee of a logging company working at the site about 150 miles southeast of Juneau.
