SALT LAKE CITY -- Investigators have determined that Colorado Rockies president Keli McGregor's death in April was from natural causes, police said Thursday.

McGregor was pronounced dead April 20 after being found in a Salt Lake City hotel room. He was 48.

Salt Lake City police spokeswoman Sgt. Robin Snyder said Thursday that homicide detectives, who investigate all unintended deaths, received the state medical examiner's report this week.

She said no drugs were found in McGregor's system and that the death had been ruled natural, but would not release any other details, including the actual cause of death.

"As far as going any further, that's getting into his medical history," Snyder said. "The family knows and that's how we're going to leave it."

Autopsy reports are not public records under Utah state law. Medical examiner Todd Grey did not immediately return a message from The Associated Press on Thursday.

Denver television station KCNC-TV first reported the medical examiner's findings.
