Man found dead in "Occupy Tallahassee" camp

A man is found dead inside this tent at the Occupy Tallahassee camp

Authorities don’t suspect foul play in the death an “Occupy Tallahassee” camper. Ryan Benk reports investigators aren’t sure when the man passed away.

It is unclear what led to the man’s death. But, the Tallahassee Police Department believes he died of natural causes. Occupy Tallahassee Spokesman Larry Hendricks says the man was a diabetic.
“I’m not sure about his cause of death, I suspect its maybe natural causes. He had informed me when he signed our covenant a few weeks ago that he had an insulin or diabetic problem.”

The man’s body was found late Thursday afternoon in his tent, after being absent from group activities for several days. TPD is still investigating.
