PEORIA (25 News Now) - A Morton man has been identified after being found dead in a bathroom at OSF St. Francis Medical Center.

Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood says the man, Ronald Richardson, 47, had ended his workday and it was presumed he had left for the day, when he was discovered in the locked bathroom hours later on the second-floor surgical area.

Autopsy on Richardson was inconclusive and is pending toxicology.

There was no trauma, and no foul play is suspected.

Harwood says Richardson was a certified registered nurse anesthetist and was employed by Associated Anesthesiologists of Peoria and worked at OSF.
