DETROIT (AP) - A 73-year-old man found dead in a dumpster behind a Detroit nursing home died of natural causes.

MLive.com (https://bit.ly/1ngdZ4i ) quotes the Wayne County medical examiner’s office as saying Ralph Ford was not the victim of a homicide.

Spokesman Lloyd Jackson says an autopsy found renal failure, pulmonary disease and other factors.

Ford’s body was discovered Wednesday in a dumpster behind St. Francis Nursing Center where he was a resident.

It’s still not clear why his body was in the dumpster. Police and state regulators are investigating.
