Marion County Coroner Troy Cannon says the 30-year-old Carlyle man who died from an apparently drug overdose last Wednesday was Michael Curran. He was pronounced dead at the Midtown Motel on North Elm where his body was discovered. Curran's name had been withheld until family could be notified.
Toxicology samples were sent to the lab to try and confirm the cause of death. It usually takes about six weeks to get results.
