Death of man found in snow on Watson Road is not suspicious, police say


The Sunset Hills Police Department said Sunday that the death of a man found in the snow Friday on Watson Road is “not suspicious in nature,” and the name of the man will not be revealed.

Officers from the department received a call about a person down in the 10500 block of Watson Road at 3:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 19, police said.

A man, 63, was found dead with no obvious signs of trauma to the body, police reported over the weekend. At first, police said they could not describe a cause of death until an autopsy was conducted.

But after an autopsy was conducted by the St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office along with further investigation by police, the death does not appear to be suspicious in nature, police said Sunday.
