Man Found Dead in Illinois School District Van

By The Associated Press

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A coroner says a maintenance worker whose body was found in a southwestern Illinois school system's van outside a high school appears to have died of natural causes.  

Madison County Coroner Stephen Nonn says 58-year-old Robert Buchwald of Edwardsville was found dead Tuesday afternoon in the vehicle behind Edwardsville High School.  

Nonn says an autopsy showed that Buchwald had an enlarged heart, but no definitive ruling in his death would come until tests on his blood samples were completed.  Noon says there's no evidence of foul play or injury.  Funeral arrangements are pending.
