CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the death of a 19-year-old Casper man who died days after being booked into the Natrona County Detention Center on drug charges.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2h12X4y ) Logan Martz died Nov. 26. Officials are awaiting the results of an autopsy to determine his cause of death.

Police had responded to a disturbance report Nov. 22 to find Martz, who appeared to be under the influence of a drug. Authorities say Martz was treated and released from the Wyoming Medical Center and then jailed.

Court documents say he had a seizure Nov. 23 and was again taken to the hospital, where his condition deteriorated and he died.
