PEORIA, Ill. — Authorities are investigating the death of a man whose body was found in a hospital bathroom in Peoria.

Burgess had been treated at the hospital on Thursday after having a seizure.

He was released and went into the bathroom. His body was discovered early Friday by a hospital employee.

The coroner is checking into whether Burgess had another seizure and fell.

It will take a few weeks to determine the final cause of his death.
