A preliminary investigation indicates that a Salisbury man drowned Monday morning, when a body was found in the water near the spillway at the city park.

Police say an autopsy also determined that the victim had not sustained a head injury, as previously reported by a forensic investigator on the scene Monday.

The cause of 25-year-old Rodney Stevenson Junior's death is still under investigation, and a full autopsy report is expected to take several weeks.

Salisbury Police also say there are no signs of foul play associated with his death at this point.

Stevenson was walking from his home on Ohio Avenue to a destination on East Main Street near Mount Hermon Road.

He was found dead about half-an-hour after he left home.
