COLUMBIA — The Boone County Medical Examiner's office performed an autopsy Tuesday on Gregory Holthaus, the man who died Sunday after being found unconscious in an MU residence hall.

The MU Police Department is waiting to get the toxicology report back in order to determine the cause of Holthaus' death, police Capt. Brian Weimer said. There is currently no evidence of foul play.

Weimer said he was unsure of when the results would be returned, and the department will wait to release information until it knows more for certain.

"It is our job to do a thorough investigation, and we have no further information at this time," Weimer said.

Supervising editor is Allie Hinga.
