ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany authorities are still trying to find what caused the death of a 35-year old Albany man Sunday while he slept in his own home.

About 10 Sunday morning William James Fisher the Third was found dead in his Marsh Landing apartment on Philema Road.

There was no trauma or signs of foul play.

Preliminary tests show the only drug in his system was a prescription painkiller.

Investigators still are not sure exactly what caused his death, so his body has been sent to the crime lab in Atlanta for further tests.
