Autopsy held in death of resident at Fayette recovery facility
The cause of death of a man whose body was discovered early Sunday morning in a pond at a men’s drug and alcohol recovery home in Wharton Township is not being released pending test results, according to the Fayette County Coroner’s Office.
The body of Michael James Cameron, 21, who was a patient at Another Way Inc., 708 Nelson Road, was found by another patient at 7:30 a.m., state police at Uniontown said. The pond is between the facility and the road, police said.
Jessie Camilli, office manager for Coroner Phillip Reilly, said Cameron was pronounced dead at 9:35 a.m. Sunday. An autopsy to determine cause of death was conducted Monday in Pittsburgh.
Reilly said Monday evening that autopsy results would not be released until he receives all test results and speaks with the victim’s family.
Police did not reveal Cameron’s hometown. Camilli said he is listed as having multiple addresses.
Another Way is one of 10 facilities in Fayette County listed by the state Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs on its drug and alcohol treatment service provider network.
