BUTTE, Mont. (AP) — Butte-Silver Bow County authorities say a 45-year-old Bozeman man whose body was found in the mountains east of Butte died due to accidental mixed-drug toxicity.
Coroner Lee LaBreche tells The Livingston Enterprise (http://bit.ly/16sJtsa) in a story on Friday that John Flanigan died shortly after he was reported missing on Aug. 15.
A team of dogs found his remains Aug. 27 about a half-mile from the Herman Gulch Trailhead south of Butte. Authorities say he had likely been dead between 10 and 12 days before the body was found.
LaBreche says recent toxicology results ruled out the possibility of suicide or foul play.
