Indiana State Police say an autopsy Wednesday revealed the cause of death for 50-year-old Ricky L. Kimble.

Police say a highway mowing crew found Kimbleís body Tuesday in a grassy area along one of Interstate 94ís Portage exits.

Kimble was last seen Saturday and was reported missing by his family.
