Authorities are investigating the death of a man whose body was found Saturday morning under the Leechburg Bridge, the Armstrong County coroner said.

Fishermen saw John R. Fouse, 43, of Gilpin face-down under the bridge about 10:50 a.m. He had recently moved to the area.

Police said Fouse had left his house about 10:10 a.m. and bought a bottle of soda at a store. Police said he might have collapsed sometime between 10:30 a.m. and 10:50 a.m.

Coroner Bob Bower said an autopsy found no injuries and that Fouse's death was consistent with natural causes, although toxicology studies are pending.

Leechburg police continue to investigate. Anyone who saw him before 10:30 a.m. or after 10:50 is asked to call Leechburg police at 724-842-8531 or the coroner's office at 724-545-1011.
