ALBANY, OR (KPTV) -

Deputies have identified a man found dead covered in a thin layer of ice and snow on a driveway near Albany.

A witness called 911 at 7:41 p.m. Wednesday to report finding the man on his back on the ground outside a home on Scarvel Hill Road.

He had a wallet with money in it, but no photo identification. Deputies said no abandoned vehicle was located in the area that may have belonged to the man.

The 911 caller stated he did not know the man.

On Friday, the Linn County Sheriff's Office reported that the man had been identified as 58-year-old Gary Allen Russell of Albany.

Deputies are waiting on toxicology reports, but said it appears he died of natural causes. 

Investigators said there is no indication of foul play in connection with his death.
