WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The body found in the woods across from Red Run Park east of Waynesboro on Thursday was positively identified on Friday as that of Timothy Wyborski, 24, of 12934 Buchanan Trail East, according to Jeffrey R. Conner, chief deputy coroner for Franklin County, Pa.

An autopsy performed Friday in Chambersburg by Dr. Samuel Land, a private forensic pathologist from Allentown, Pa., showed no signs of foul play in Wyborski's death.

"There was no blunt force," Conner said.

It will be several weeks before the cause of death will be known. "We're waiting for toxology and entomology studies to be completed," Conner said.

He said while Wyborski's dental records are still being checked, a positive identification was made from a tattoo and papers found on the body.

Conner said the time of death was determined to be around the same time Wyborski was reported missing by his family on June 21. He was last seen in Waynesboro on June 20, he said.

Washington Township Police were conducting a search for Wyborski in the area when his body was found around 11:20 a.m. Thursday in a wooded section off Pa. 16 not far from his home.

Family members could not be reached for comment Friday.
