The Lewis County Coroner's Office says a man found dead on the side of a street in Centralia Sunday morning died of natural causes.
The man was identified as Anthony P. Fries, 64 of Centralia. The cause of death was cardiac related, the coroner said.
The death was handled as suspicious during the scene investigation due to the fact of being in the road and no witnesses.
At 6:22 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to a report of a man found on the 100 block of E Third Street. When officers arrived, they found the man unconscious and not breathing. An aid unit responded and determined the man was dead.
