BROOK, Ind. (AP) — Authorities in northwestern Indiana are investigating the death of a man whose body was found in a tent outside a residence.

Newton County Coroner Scott McCord says emergency responders in the town of Brook found 37-year-old Jaysen Wayne Kolodziej unresponsive Saturday morning.

The (Munster) Times reports a preliminary investigation by the coroner and Brook police point to an accidental drug overdose as the cause of death.

An autopsy and toxicology tests are scheduled for Monday.

Brook is located about 50 miles south of Gary.
