August 6, 2010

A 67-year-old Boy Scouts of America staff member was found dead in the final days of the Boy Scout Jamboree.

Boy Scouts spokesman Deron Smith said Thursday that the man, a volunteer from Stillwater, Okla., was found unresponsive Wednesday morning after going to bed the previous night.

Caroline County Sheriff Tony Lippa said a preliminary investigation indicates the man died of natural causes. His body was taken to the state medical examiner's office in Richmond.

Smith declined to release other details about the victim.
