JAMESTOWN, N.D. - The body of a North Dakota man was found at a local business Thursday afternoon.  

The Jamestown Police Department said Travis Vurgad, 27, Linton, was found dead in the bathroom of a business Thursday afternoon.

Jamestown Police Chief Scott Edinger said an employee from the business called Stutsman County Communications to report a man was passed out in the bathroom and not breathing. Jamestown Area Ambulance was called to the scene and determined the man, later identified as Vurgad, was dead at the scene.

Edinger said an autopsy had already been performed on Vurgad, but no details as to what caused his death were yet available. “We are waiting for a copy of the autopsy report,” Edinger said.
