The Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a man who was found in the front yard of a home Saturday morning.

Sgt. Matt McCauley said the body of a 50-year-old man was found in the 1300 block of Coopermill Road. He said an investigation is underway, but the cause of death appears to be accidental at this time.

The man’s name is not being released until his family is notified. McCauley said County Coroner Perry Kalis ordered an autopsy and the body will be taken to Newark.
