PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities are awaiting results of an autopsy on the body of a 50-year-old upstate New York man who was found lying naked outside his trailer park home.

State Police in Plattsburgh responded to a report Wednesday afternoon and found the unclothed body of Mark Brown on the ground. The body was taken to nearby Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital for autopsy.

Police say a preliminary investigation has revealed Brown had medical issues, but troopers have declined to comment on whether foul play is suspected because they don't have enough information to make that determination.

Authorities say cause of death may not be determined until toxicology reports are returned to the Clinton County Coroner.
