GRAND FORKS – Police released the name of a 26-year-old man found dead this morning in a bathroom at the Columbia Mall in Grand Forks.

Police were dispatched to the mall just before 10 a.m. for reports of an unresponsive man, according to a news release from the Grand Forks Police Department. When officers and paramedics arrived, they found Michael Anthony Hall slumped over on the floor of the mall bathroom, according to the latest release.

Police do not believe foul play was involved in Hall’s death and there is no safety concern to the general public, but officers are still investigating the cause of his death, according to the release.

Police did not know how long Hall had been there or when his death occurred, though Sgt. Travis Benson said when officers arrived, it appeared the man had been dead for some time.

Benson declined to go into details about what - if anything - was found around the body and would not say what police suspected was the cause of his death.
