EAST MOLINE, Illinois -- Police say weather played a part in the death of a FedEx worker, whose body was found outside at an East Moline delivery hub.
The worker, a 69-year-old man, was found dead at FedEx Freight on Thursday, January 31, according to Rock Island County Coroner Brian Gustafson. FedEx Freight is located off Morton Drive near the Quad City Downs.
Captain Darren Gault from the East Moline Police Department said another FedEx employee found the worker's body between two semi tractors. The discovery was reported around 9:30 a.m.
The East Moline Police Department removed his body from the scene Thursday morning. Gustafson said authorities weren't sure how long the body had been there before it was found.
Captain Gault said there were no significant signs of foul play.
Gustafson said the cause of death was unknown; an autopsy was scheduled for Monday, February 4.
An investigation was underway, with authorities making use of security cameras around the FedEx facility.
