Jeremy Uhrig, who was found dead in his Clovis duplex Aug. 23, died of a methamphetamine overdose, the Fresno County Coroner's Office reported.

Uhrig died while his 2-year-old daughter was inside the home with him.

When his body was discovered by the duplex owner and a maintenance man, police were concerned Uhrig might have been a victim of foul play. He had not been seen for 36 hours when his body was discovered.

Uhrig was a 1999 graduate of Clovis High School.
