The Allegheny Medical Examiner's office Saturday identified an Erie man found dead in a Monroeville motel.

Lamont Sidney, 39, was found in East Exit Motel on Route 22, located between the Turnpike on-ramp and #1 Cochran of Monroeville car dealership.

An autopsy on Sidney was done Saturday, but the cause and manner of his death are pending toxicological studies. Police said they did not see any gunshot or knife wounds.

Police towed a white SUV from the motel parking lot, but police would not confirm if it had belonged to Sidney.

Monroeville's animal control officer is caring for two puppies that were removed from the room.
