SALT LAKE CITY -- Sheriff's investigators say an autopsy of a 66-year-old man whose body was found inside a car in a parking lot at St. Mark's Hospital showed he did not die of trauma or any long-term medical condition.

They're now awaiting the results of toxicology tests.

Leonard Burr's body was discovered Tuesday morning by hospital security officers. His car was first noticed by security Monday night, but the body wasn't discovered until the next day. He was in a fetal position, in the passenger seat.

Sheriff's Lt. Don Hutson says there is still a "very active" investigation into what happened before Burr died.
