TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - DNA evidence has confirmed the identity of a man found dead in a Tupelo home earlier this month.

Lee County Coroner Carolyn Green tells WTVA-TV (https://bit.ly/2jdrzV8 ) that forensic exams show the body is that of 31-year-old Kwatavian Walker.

She says Walker’s body had been in the home for several weeks when it was found.

Green says an autopsy showed no signs or injury or any type of wound. She says there are no signs to indicate foul play.

Police say the home where he was found was vacant, and the owner had last checked the property three months prior to the discovery.

Walker was considered to be homeless and hadn’t been seen by family members in several months.
