Rochester Police believe death near John Adams may have been accidental

(ABC 6 News) – UPDATE: Rochester police do not believe that a Saturday morning death was suspicious, Capt. Casey Moilanen said.

According to RPD, police found a 43-year-old Rochester man covered in blood in his garage July 22, after the man’s 6-year-old son called his mother for help.

The woman called dispatch, who took the breathing but unresponsive man to St. Mary’s, where he later died.

Rochester police believe the man may have fallen in his garage and struck his head, then “laid there for some time,” Moilanen said.

Autopsy results are expected Monday.
