FOX 8 received this news release from the St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's Office Friday evening:

An autopsy showed a Violet area man whose body was found early Friday morning behind a former church building in Violet had no signs of trauma and foul play isn't suspected, Sheriff James Pohlmann said.

Toxicology tests that would indicate more about the possible cause of death of the man, identified as Tagh Moore, 33, were conducted but the results will take time before they are available, the sheriff said.

Also, sheriff's detectives are looking into who left Moore in a grassy area behind the former Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church building, which is in the 6300 block of East St. Bernard Highway, the sheriff said.

Moore was found by the Sheriff's Office about 3 a.m. Friday, between First Street and the rear of the old church building, after reports that a dead man had been left in bushes near the Violet Canal, which is just west of the church building.

The sheriff also said investigators, after obtaining a search warrant from a judge, searched an abandoned house in the area, which is where information received indicated Moore had been inside on Thursday night.

Sheriff's detectives are following leads on who may have brought the body to where Moore was found, the sheriff said.
