UPDATED at 6:06 p.m. with autopsy results and the victim's identification

COLLINSVILLE • Police have identified the body of a Collinsville man found dead Wednesday morning in the grass of a vacant lot south of downtown.

Police say Zachary S. Schellenberg, 27, probably had been dead less than 24 hours before his body was found at 9:50 a.m. in the 800 block of South Morrison Avenue, about a block from the landmark catsup bottle.

Police say they don't suspect foul play in Schellenberg's death.

A preliminary autopsy report released Wednesday afternoon found no signs of physical trauma on Schellenberg's body that would indicate a cause of death. Police say they are waiting for results from a toxicology test.  

The lot was the site of a commercial building that had been demolished several years ago, a spokesman said.
