COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Officials are waiting on autopsy results after a man is found dead in a South Columbus yard.

Police say two passersby found a 63-year-old man lying on his back in a yard at a home on East Central Street off Andrews Road Wednesday night. 

According to investigators, the man lived in a camper on the property.

His identity is not being released until his family members are contacted.

Muscogee County Coroner Bill Thrower says he examined the body and didn't see anything to indicate foul play. He believes the death is natural or maybe the result of an accident.

An autopsy is being performed at the state crime lab in Atlanta.
