The Carroll County Sheriff's Office said on Tuesday that an autopsy has revealed no foul play in the death of a 17-year-old whose body was found last month along a road in Finksburg.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the Maryland State Medical Examiner's Office said Caleb Lee Mott died from natural causes related to diabetes.

The medical examiner's autopsy found no signs of trauma during the examination, the sheriff's office reported.

At approximately 11 a.m., on Oct. 12, sheriff's deputies responded to a wooded area along the 2100 block of Sandymount Road for a report of an unconscious male.

Deputies located a white male, later identified as Mott, of Westminster, lying deceased in a tree line a short distance from the roadway.

Mott had been last seen early the prior morning as he walked from a friend's home close to where his body was discovered.

Investigators did not observe any injuries to Mott's body and found no evidence of a struggle at the scene.

Investigators said they have shared the medical examiner's report with Mott's family.
