PRINCETON — Princeton Police are in the process of investigating a death.

Aaron J. Porter, 42, of Princeton was found dead near the parking lot of Liberty Village on North Sixth Street in Princeton early Sunday morning. Porter was not a resident of the facility. Princeton Police Chief Tom Root said the death does not appear to be suspicious in nature.

An autopsy was performed on Monday.

Bureau County Coroner Janice Wamhoff said nothing significant showed up in the autopsy. She said Porter had been suffering from Huntington's Disease for quite some time.

"Right now, we know he had been falling due to the disease he had," Wamhoff said. "We suspect he did fall that night, which could have contributed to his death. Pathologists will put everything under the microscope, and then we'll wait on the toxicology report. Then we'll be able to get the final cause (of death), pending those reports."
