WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The results of a police investigation into the death of a Blue Ridge Summit, Pa., man who was left outside of Waynesboro Hospital's emergency room two months ago will not be released until next month, Waynesboro Police Chief Ray Shultz said Tuesday.

On Monday, Franklin County Coroner Jeffrey R. Conner said toxicology tests showed Gregory S. Callahan, 22, of 13557 B Summit Ave., died of morphine toxicity. He had been left outside the emergency room at about 5:15 a.m. on May 13 and was pronounced dead in the hospital 12 minutes later.

Shultz said in May that police were interviewing those who knew Callahan to determine the circumstances of his death. Shultz said Tuesday that further information about the case will not be available until after the investigating officer returns from military training in early August and has an opportunity to speak with Callahan's family.

"Once they are notified of what our investigation revealed and what charges will or will not be filed," the information will be released, Shultz said.
