An autopsy of a Minot Air Force Base missile officer whose body was found Friday night in Minot did not reveal anything unusual, according to Minot Police.
The body of Capt. Jonathan Bayless, 28, was found Friday night in an area north of the Minot city soccer complex. Police received the call about 5:30 p.m. The soccer complex is in northwest Minot. Bayless lived in the area.
Capt. Al Hanson of the Minot Police Department said the autopsy was completed Monday morning and they are awaiting the toxicology report.
"We don't believe there's anything unusual at this point and are awaiting the toxicology report," Hanson said.
Toxicology reports usually take about two weeks, but police expect to
receive a preliminary report sooner.
Bayless was the chief of training scenarios for the 91st Operations Support Squadron, a unit of the 91st Missile Wing. He has been on active duty since May 2003 and arrived at Minot AFB in March 2005. He was previously assigned to Vandenberg AFB, Calif., for missile combat crew member training.
"The 91st Missile Wing has lost not only a valuable member of our team, but a member of our family, and he will be missed," said Col. Christopher Ayres, commander of the 91st Missile Wing.
Bayless' hometown could not be disclosed by the military.
Wing officials are planning a memorial service.
