Lorain County Coroner Dr. Stephen Evans finished the autopsy report Tuesday for Cory Barron and was preparing to send it to Cleveland police, but said people will likely be disappointed because it doesn't provide any of the answers people were so desperately seeking.

"We don't know any more. ... The circumstances haven't changed," he said. "It appears to be just a tragic accident."

Barron, 22, disappeared Friday, July 18, while attending a Jason Aldean concert at Progressive Field. His body was found Tuesday, July 22, at the Lorain County Landfill in New Russia Township.

[ID=16107239]Evans said the cause of death was multiple blunt force impact from the five-story fall down a Progressive Field trash chute, and death was immediate.

Evans said their was no sign of foul play and nothing on the body to indicate Barron's fall was not accidental.

Evans said tests detected the presence of alcohol, but due to the condition of the body he couldn't say how much. He said no other drugs were detected in Barron's system.
