Autopsy results in the death of a Mammoth man have revealed that his death was not a homicide.
The Mono County Sheriff/ Coroner’s Office reports that the November 4th autopsy of 30-year-old John Tobacco of Mammoth Lakes revealed that he did not die by the hands of another. The report says the “final cause of death is pending the final toxicology results which usually take several weeks to be concluded.”
It was at the end of October that the Mono Sheriff’s Department checked on a call regarding an unresponsive man in Mammoth Lakes. Mr. Tobacco was found by his roommate and Mammoth Lakes Police and Mono County Paramedics responded. They determined that Tobacco was deceased.
This death was at first thought to be suspicious in nature. Officers said that narcotics were found at the scene. The Sheriff’s Department spokesmen say they will release information on the final cause of death when the final toxicology report is complete.
