I wish to update you on the person found deceased October 24 in Butler. Mr. Rexford Hurshman had been previously reported missing and a search was underway when he was found deceased near his residence.
Autopsy and toxicology reports are final at this time. The cause of death has been identified and is of natural causes. Foul play and trauma were not suspected, and have been definitively ruled out.
