Columbia, IL (KSDK) - The Major Case Squad of Greater St Louis will disband this afternoon after concluding that a man found dead in a home in southern Illinois died as a result of a drug overdose.
Columbia Police Chief Joe Edwards said they were called to do a welfare check and found 45-year-old Craig Wood dead inside a home in the 900 block of Bluffside Road around 5:25 p.m. Sunday.
The Major Case Squad was activated after police initially discovered signs of foul play, but those theories were cleared.
Investigators said they discovered synthetic marijuana and an unknown white substance in Craig Wood's system.
Police are still awaiting a full toxicology report.
