Authorities on Thursday identified the man as Jorge Valladares of Dover. Police said the cause of death is still under investigation, but that it does not appear to involve foul play.

Valladares had been previously arrested in May 2021 on burglary and related charges following an incident at a home in Hartly.

Those charges were dropped two months later.
