Autopsy rules man died of 'unknown natural causes'

MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) - An autopsy revealed a 20-year-old Region 8 man died of "unknown natural causes."

On Jan. 4, a family member discovered Brennan Watson's body at his home in the 1500-block of Hicks Road in Mountain Home, according to Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery.

Because the cause of death was not apparent, and there were no visible signs of foul play, the body was sent to the Arkansas State Medical Examiner's Office in Little Rock.

Autopsy results released Tuesday, April 12, indicate Watson's death was "natural."

The cause, according to the sheriff, was listed as "unknown natural causes."

The report indicated no evidence of external or internal trauma.

Toxicology results were negative for all substances, Montgomery said.
