A man found dead this week in a Morro Bay street has been identified as Matthew Martin Gardiner.

Police say an autopsy did not show any signs of foul play in the 31-year-old's death.

Gardiner's body was found in the road in the area of Harbor Street and Piney Way shortly before 3 a.m. Monday.

At the time, police said there were suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.

Investigators add that Gardiner, who may be from out of the area, had underlying health issues, which were complicated by detected substance abuse.
