Laurel police have finished their major work at a residence on the 600 block of Fifth Avenue in Laurel where an unattended body was found Monday, and the investigation is continuing, pending a toxicology report, Chief Stan Langve said in a press release.

Langve said police have discovered nothing so far to upgrade the investigation to a suspicious death.

No threat to public safety has been discovered, he said.

The identity of the body has not been released.
