The Polk County Sheriff’s Office says the death of a man found in a home on the city’s northeast side is not suspicious.

Officials were dispatched to 4410 Northeast 34th Street on a call for medical help Thursday. When they arrived they found 52-year-old Michael Pratt unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The DCI was called in to investigate the death, but after an autopsy was performed Friday, the Polk County Medical Examiner’s Office says the death didn’t occur in a suspicious manner. Results from toxicology tests won’t be available for a few weeks.

No charges have been filed in the case.
