Coroner Releases Name Of Man Found By Railroad Tracks Last Week
The Natrona County Coroner's Office has released the name of the man who was found dead by the railroad tracks near downtown last week, according to a press release.
"The deceased male found at C & N. Beech Streets is identified as Daniel S. Serratore, a 52-yearold caucasian male," Coroner Connie Jacobson wrote.
"Legal next of kin have been notified," Jacobson wrote. "Autopsy reports are pending."
Chief Deputy Coroner Wayne Reynolds said Monday that Serratore had relatives in Colorado.
"He has been here at different periods of time," Reynolds said. "How much, I don't know. And I'm not sure why he ended up where he did, as far as him being at C Street and North Beech, I have no idea."
The case started about 10 a.m. Wednesday when Casper police responded to a call about the body, which was found in an abandoned loading dock away from the main rail line at the railroad tracks near North Beech and East C streets.
The coroner’s office took over the investigation.
Friday, Reynolds said preliminary results indicated the man died of exposure-hypothermia. Foul play was ruled out as a manner of death.
The coroner’s office had been able to identify him, but couldn't release that information last week.
Hypothermia was the cause of death, Reynolds said.
