Officials are investigating the death of transient James Casteel, 59, whose body was found Sunday morning at the Fremont County Good Samaritan Center in Riverton. Coroner Ed McAuslan said there was nothing "outwardly suspicious" about the death. "(Casteel) was staying at the shelter," McAuslan said Tuesday. "There was no trauma or anything like that, but (with him) being transient we don't know what happened." On Wednesday, McAuslan said Casteel's preliminary autopsy was inconclusive. "They didn't find anything that was obvious," McAuslan said. He will wait for results from toxicology tests, which typically take four to six weeks to be completed.
