Officials have ruled out foul play in the death of a man found in Rifle Creek Tuesday.

The Garfield County Coroner's Office is waiting on a pathologist's report to determine the exact cause of death but says that foul play is not suspected.

The man's identity hasn't been confirmed, though he was carrying an I.D.

Officials are also awaiting results from a fingerprint test.

The man's body was found by a fisherman near where the creek intersects with Centennial Parkway in Rifle.
