FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - Police say excessive heat may have been a factor in the death of a man found dead on a Frederick roadside.

The Frederick News-Post reports the man was found dead at about 7:15 a.m. Thursday by a utility worker who arrived to work at a water tower on Butterfly Lane. Detective Sgt. Joe Hayer of the Frederick Police Department says a host of things may have caused the man's death but there are no signs of foul play.

The man was not identified Thursday.
