Preliminary autopsy results indicate foul play was not a factor in the death of an Ogden teen found in a Mormon chapel’s parking lot.

Ogden police Lt. Mike Ashment said Thursday that detectives were awaiting results of toxicology tests on the body of 19-year-old Tyler Thomas Lloyd. He was spotted by passersby about 9 a.m. Wednesday in the back parking lot of the church, near the northwest corner of Winchester Lane and Shadow Valley Drive. Paramedics declared him dead at the scene.

“He has a history with us for drug use,” Ashment said, noting that could point to a possible overdose as a contributing factor in the teen’s death.

Lloyd had not been reported missing, and there were no obvious signs of trauma to his body, police said.
