YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding a deceased man found in a Youngstown lot.

The body was found behind the Progressive Club, near Forest and Himrod avenues.

Mahoning County Deputy Coroner Dr. Joseph Ohr identified the man as 48-year-old Quay Smith, of Youngstown.

Ohr said there does not appear to be any inflicted trauma to his body and it did not appear that he suffered any major health issues, so investigators are waiting for toxicology results to determine whether his death was drug-or alcohol-related. Those results should be available in 10 to 14 days.
