St. Charles police were investigating the death of a man found in the woods Tuesday in the western suburb.

Police began looking for the man after his employer reported that he missed work and they were concerned for his well-being, St. Charles police said in a statement.

The man was believed to be homeless and living out of a tent in the woods near Oak and West Main streets, police said.

Neil Scroggin, 45, was found in the woodsin the 2600 block of Oak Street and pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

The Kane County coroner’s office said an autopsy into his cause of death was pending further study.

St. Charles police were investigating the death and said the preliminary investigation and autopsy do not indicate foul play.

Anyone with information about Scroggin was asked to call police at (630) 433-3827.
