Comments Off on Meth cause of death for man found in Rapid Creek

Investigators determined methamphetamine toxicity to be the cause of death for the 23-year-old Rapid City man who was found in May in Rapid Creek.

A Sioux Park passer-by found Spencer Pitcher’s body on May 1 in about 1 foot of water in the creek near Dakota Drive and Canyon Lake Drive, according to a news release from the Rapid City Police Department and the Pennington County Sheriff’s Office.

The autopsy, scene investigation and toxicology reports determined the main cause of death, but investigators said the creek may have been a contributing cause, according to law enforcement.

Foul play was not a factor in Pitcher’s death, the sheriff’s office said.
