ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator has determined that a man who was found dead in a tree died from complications of methamphetamine toxicity.

The Roswell Daily Record reported (https://bit.ly/2x1c74O ) Tuesday that the Chaves County Sheriff’s Office found 30-year-old Sergio Alexander Salas suspended in a tree in a “very difficult position” six days after his mother reported him missing June 2.

The office found no evidence of trauma in Salas’ death.

Salas was 15 feet (4.6 meters) above the ground in the tree on a farm.
