TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa Police have released the name of a man whose body was found along 36th Street North Friday. He has been identified as 37-year-old Daniel Yochum. 

Homicide Sergeant David Walker said an autopsy revealed no signs of trauma that would have caused Yochum's death, so it is not being investigated as a murder. However, they did find evidence of drug use, and they believe someone may have dumped his body along the side of the road. Walker said Friday that one of the possibilities in the man's death was an overdose.

Yochum's black 2006 Nissan Altima with Oklahoma tag 527-JFV is missing. Anyone with information about the location of the car or who left Yochum's body by the side of the road is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS. Callers may remain anonymous.
