WALDOBORO, Maine — An autopsy performed Thursday on the body of a man found the previous day outside his brother’s Waldoboro home was inconclusive on the cause of death, according to the Maine State Police.

But there was no indication of foul play in the death of 37-year-old Jeffrey Stone, according to Stephen McCausland, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman.

The medical examiner’s office will wait for toxicology tests to come back before stating the cause of death, McCausland said. The tests could take weeks or months to process and would indicate whether drugs were a factor in Stone’s death.

Stone was found dead “outside his brother’s property on the Goshen Road yesterday morning,” according to McCausland. He was unable to say who found the body.

State police and the Waldoboro Police Department will continue investigating the case, he said.
