Burlington, Vermont, police say there is no indication that foul play or exposure played a role in the death of a 32-year-old man whose body was found inside a tent in a wooded area near a bike path that runs along the shore of Lake Champlain.

Police have not released the name of the man whose body was discovered just after 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Police said they received a call from someone who noticed a man inside the tent who was not moving.

Investigators are awaiting the results of an autopsy before determining the cause of death.

Police say it could be several weeks before the results are available because of the need for toxicology tests.
