Autopsy inconclusive regarding body found in pond

A man was believed to have drowned in a pond at a home on Thorton Drive in Fort Wayne.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)  An autopsy was performed Tuesday afternoon on the body of a man found floating face down in a pond early that morning at a home in the 4000 block of Thorton Drive in Fort Wayne.

Police were called to the home at around 5:30 a.m.  Thorton Drive is located south of Stellhorn Road just east of Reed Road.

Because the autopsy was inconclusive, investigators will now try to determine if the man suffered some sort of medical issue prior to him going into the pond.  His identity has not been released and the final autopsy results won’t be available for several weeks according to the Allen County Coroner’s Office.

Fort Wayne police initially indicated they did not suspect foul play. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is also taking part in the investigation.
