Investigators do not know what substance the man had overdosed on, however Hodgeman said evidence seen at the home indicates drug use had taken place. 

The man’s body has been sent to the Southern Minnesota Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy. Hodgeman says investigators are also awaiting the results of a toxicology report that can take up to six months to come back.
