An autopsy performed on the Bridgeport man found dead Saturday in Westport came back inconclusive.
A jogger found Sandokan "Mooney" Harrell, 39, unresponsive on the side of Partrick Road just after 9 a.m. The jogger tried to revive him, but Harrell was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Police say it appears Harrell may have suffered a medical issue at a different location than where he was found. Harrell was found 6 to 8 inches off the roadway and police say he was left in a position that appeared that "someone cared about him."
Police say Harrell attended the Harlem Globetrotters game at the Arena at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport Friday night with friends, but they are unsure of his whereabouts after that. Anyone with information on where he was between 11 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. Saturday are asked to call police.
Family members say Harrell's wake and funeral will be held Friday in Bridgeport.
