OGDEN, Kan. (WIBW) -- According to autopsy results, an Ogden man's death was an accident. At first, police said the death appeared suspicious.

Riley County police officers found the body of 50-year-old Alan Jump inside his apartment on Friday, November 2, 2012.

Jump's neighbor called police saying they were concerned because they hadn't seen him in a few days. He lived alone.

Officers responded to Jump's apartment at 315 North Park Street in Ogden and when he didn't come to the door, they made entry and found him deceased.

At the time, officials said officers were checking into some "unusual, suspicious circumstances" in the case. Further details were not provided. There were no signs of violence, they said.

Autopsy results show that Jump accidentally overdosed on fentanyl. Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opiate analgesic that is more potent than morphine. It is a prescription drug that is typically used to treat patients with severe pain.
