CPD reports man declared dead in South Maple home

CENTRALIA — Police Chief Brian Atchison is reporting that his officers responded around 9:17 Tuesday morning to a report of an unresponsive male subject at a residence in the 1200 block of South Maple.

Atchison says the Marion County Coroner’s Office was subsequently called to the scene and pronounced the 41-year-old man dead on the scene.

The Centralia Police Department is conducting an investigation into the circumstances of the man’s death but at this time no cause of death has been determined. Foul play is not suspected, and there are no indications that drug or substance use was involved. An autopsy has been scheduled for Wednesday at the Champaign County Coroner’s office.
