BELLINGHAM — Police don’t suspect foul play after a man was found dead in a parking lot on Railroad Avenue over the weekend.
Dylan J. Boatman, 25, was found outside early Saturday, Dec. 15, slumped against the side of a pickup parked in the 1100 block of Railroad, said Bellingham police spokesman Mark Young. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
No evidence of inflicted trauma was found on Boatman’s body — as I wrote on this blog Monday — so investigators are awaiting results of toxicology tests to determine how he died.
Update Feb. 1 Boatman died of alcohol poisoning, according to the Whatcom County Medical Examiner’s Office. His death was ruled an accident.
