Body discovered along road in Plum
Police from Plum and Allegheny County are investigating the death of a man whose body they found early Monday beside Pine Valley Drive.
Plum police Lt. Lanny Conley said a passerby alerted officers to the man, who was later identified as Stephen Medley, 60, and the officers found Medley without a pulse at 3:51 a.m. in the Holiday Park section of the borough.
There was no sign of trauma, Conley said.
Medley, who was not wearing a shirt or shoes, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was identified by the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office. Officials there declined to disclose Medley’s address.
Authorities said the cause and manner of death are pending toxicology and histology tests, which are expected to be completed in three to five months.
Conley said Allegheny County police are leading the investigation.
County police Lt. Andrew Schurmann could not be reached for comment.
Anyone with information about Medley’s death is asked to call Plum police at 412-795-6800 or county police at 412-473-1300.
