Authorities have ruled out a crime in the death of an 18-year-old resident at a behavioral health center in York.

The York News-Times says an autopsy showed the 18-year-old man died from "ligature strangulation by hanging." His body was discovered at one of the residential facilities on Sept. 28.

York Police Chief Don Klug says the autopsy toxicology results showed no drugs or alcohol in the young man's system.

Klug says "there was absolutely no foul play involved in this situation, and this is officially a closed case."

Epworth Village provides residential, therapeutic, educational, in-home and foster care services for children and families dealing
with severe emotional and behavioral disorders.
