Body of man found by Pokemon Go players died of suspected drug overdose

- A man found dead in the parking lot of a seminary by a group of Pokemon Go players died of a drug overdose, according to the Union County Sheriff's Office.

Andrew Michael Moore, 42, was found in the parking lot of Southern Evangelical Seminary on Tilley Morris Road. 

Sheriff’s Detectives are continuing to investigate the circumstances leading up to Moore’s death. 

Citizens with information concerning criminal activity are encouraged to call: Union County Sheriff’s Office at 704-283-3789.

Deputies say a father and his children were playing Pokemon go when they came across the man's body in front of the Southern Evangelical Seminary and called 911.

Investigators say there aren't visible wounds to determine what might have killed the man but are treating the death suspicious until the cause can be determined.

"There are things we have to look at and sort of determine how some sort of injury might have occurred. I wouldn't call it significant at this point," said Union County Sheriff's Office Spokesperson Tony Underwood.

The body is identified as 42-year-old, Andrew Michael Moore from the Weddington area. Police tell us there was no sign of a struggle at the scene and no obvious cause of death was noted.
