In Jackson County, funeral services are pending for a man who authorities believe died of natural causes before his body was found along a trail near Cedar Lake.
The Jackson County Coroner says 69-year-old Robert Tyson of Murphysboro was found dead Friday by mountain bikers on a trail near Cedar Lake. Tyson likely died of a heart attack.
Tyson had been reported missing by family members who grew worried after he had not returned home from doing trail maintenance in the area near a Pomona boat launch.
His body was found three miles up a trail north of where his car was parked.
Funeral arrangements are pending with Crain Funeral Home in Murphysboro.
