— Based on the results of an autopsy, Harnett County authorities said Wednesday that a man whose body was found last week near Spring Lake didn't die as a result of foul play.

The partially decomposed body of Dennis Alan Conley, 32, of Fayetteville, was found last Thursday at the end of Peaceful Lane, off of Bethel Baptist Road.

Investigators said he was last seen walking near the intersection of Sherry Lane and Tiffany Circle in Spring Lake – about a half-mile from where the body was found – on Aug. 19.

The autopsy turned up no evidence of injuries. Authorities are still awaiting the results of toxicology tests to determine a cause of death.
