April 03, 2013

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Authorities have found no indication of foul play in the death of a man who was found Sunday evening near a private school on Apple Harvest Drive, Berkeley County Sheriff Kenneth Lemaster Jr. said Wednesday.

An autopsy of the body was to be performed by the West Virginia Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, but Lemaster said he did not have any information regarding the examination results.

The investigation began with a “welfare check” report Sunday at 5:51 p.m., and Lemaster said it was his understanding the man subsequently was found dead in the area of Rocky Knoll School. The school at 52 Advent Drive is just west of the entrance to The Commons shopping center.

“There’s no indication of foul play at this time,” Lemaster said.
