CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — An employee who died at a natural gas processing plant in southwestern Wyoming has been identified as a Kemmerer man.
36-year-old Michael Smuin died at the Williams plant in Opal on Wednesday.

Officials say his cause of death will be determined by a coroner.
The plant was still shut down as of Thursday morning.
Smuin's death remains under investigation.
