Seth A. Kilburn, 34, of Lake Placid. He was last seen leaving Wiseguys bar on School Street in the village of Lake Placid between 12:30 and 1 a.m. Sunday, August 12, 2012.
“The manner of death is undetermined,” the chief said, pending results from Medical Examiner Dr. C. Francis Varga.
“At this point in the investigation, we don’t suspect foul play.”
Police are awaiting toxicology results to see if alcohol or drugs were a factor.
“He was basically in plain sight, but not in an area you could see from the road,” Moore said.
The home is owned by an elderly person who could not conduct a search outside, police said.
“It appears Seth quite possibly fell off an embankment,” Moore told the Press-Republican.
“There was a dropoff at the location where he fell, from four to 10 feet.”
Moore said there was debris at the site where Kilburn landed.
Police do not know the actual time of death, but Moore said it is very likely Kilburn died as a result of the fall.
He was alone at the time, having last been seen at about 1 a.m. on Sunday, walking toward home after leaving Wiseguys Nightclub. Link to article
