A man found dead on the side of the road in Fresno County has been identified as 50-year-old Douglas Erickson of Clovis.
Erickson was found by workers about 2:30 p.m. Friday near a vineyard in the area of Nebraska and Orange avenues west of Selma. He was wearing a sweatshirt, pants and sneakers. The workers believed he was injured and called for help.
Firefighters found Erickson dead and Fresno County sheriff’s deputies called homicide detectives to investigate a possible questionable death. The coroner’s office did an autopsy Saturday and found no signs of injury. The cause of death is pending the results of toxicology tests.
