REDFIELD (AP) -- A missing South Dakota man who was found dead inside his vehicle in a creek died of natural causes.

Spink County Sheriff Kevin Schurch tells the media that the county coroner determined 75-year-old Donald Stahl of Redfield died before his sport utility vehicle went into Turtle Creek on June 12. Stahl's body was found the next day after an aerial and ground search.
