The body of a 45-year-old Lincoln man has been found in a creek on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln East Campus.
Assistant UNL Police Chief Charlotte Evans identifies the man as James Lawrence.
Evans says the cause of death is not known at this time. An autopsy has been completed. No signs of violence were evident. Pathologists are waiting for results from toxicology tests.
It isn’t known how long the body had been in Dead Man’s Run, a creek that runs along the border of the East Campus. Evans says a faculty member found the body Saturday evening while walking with his son through the woods.
