The death of a man on Jan. 2 at Hidden Lakes Campground in Morrow County remains under investigation.

Morrow County Sheriff Steve Brenneman said Ricky McClure, 25, was found deceased there along shrubs near the lake by the pool at the campground after receiving a call from the campground.

“According to preliminary reports, there was some speculation that he was highly intoxicated,” Brenneman said. “At this point, there was no indication of foul play.”

The sheriff added that he was unsure of McClure’s address.

Brenneman said preliminary reports indicated that McClure died of hypothermia.

An official at the campground declined comment, saying he was advised by the Sheriff’s Office not to say anything until the investigation was complete.
