Suspicious death under investigation

The New Richmond Police Department is investigating a suspected drug overdose.

The preliminary autopsy results for 19-year-old Clayton Brown, found dead in a New Richmond mobile home April 10, may have indicated a possible drug overdose.

Police Chief David Willoughby said that the body of the New Richmond teenager was found dead in the trailer at 803 Willow Street after a search warrant was executed.

The cause of death was initially suspicious because there were numerous discrepancies in the reports of the people that were questioned by the police.

Now, Chief Willoughby said that the autopsy results are consistent with a drug overdose and the police department are awaiting the results of a toxicology report, which could take four to six weeks.
