BLUFFTON, S.C. — Authorities say they are trying to figure out what killed a man whose body was found in woods near a mobile home park.

Beaufort County Sheriff P.J. Tanner told The Island Packet of Hilton Head that some things found around where 46-year-old Gustavo "Gus" Melendez were odd, but he wouldn't give additional details.

Coroner Ed Allen says there was no sign of trauma and an autopsy couldn't determine a cause of death.

A deputy found Melendez 's body Wednesday after seeing his mo-ped on the side of the road.

Melendez brother had reported him missing Monday.
