CONNERSVILLE — Indiana State Police are investigating after a man was found dead early Wednesday at a Connersville cemetery.

Combs' cause and manner of death have yet to be determined pending an autopsy by the Fayette County Coroner's Office, ISP said. Police haven't specified when Combs died.

Combs was in his early 50s.

Authorities haven't released additional details, citing an ongoing investigation.

ISP asked anyone with more information to contact its Pendleton post at 765=778-2121.
