Topeka Man's Death: Suspicious Or Natural?

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Topeka Detectives are waiting to hear what killed a man at a home in northeast Topeka Thursday night before they decide whether it needs to be investigated.

A call first came in at 8:00 p.m. of a medical situation at 119 NE Lake St. A 60-year-old man was found unresponsive at the home. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Topeka Detectives were then called to the house, where Lt. Joe Perry says someone was interviewed. That person's identity and relation to the victim are unknown.

Lt. Perry said the house was held for a search warrant Thursday night, but he wasn't sure why. The Topeka Capital-Journal reported illegal narcotics were found at the home.

A coroner will now conduct an autopsy, which Lt. Perry said will let Detectives know if the man died of natural causes or if his death was suspicious and worth investigating. It takes about a week for a coroner's report to be complete.

The victim has not been identified. The Shawnee County Appraiser's website lists Conrad Campos Jr. as the homeowner.
