A 58-year-old man was found dead Monday morning on the Green Line platform of the Roosevelt CTA station in the South Loop.

Jeffrey A. Linneman was found lying unresponsive at 6:17 a.m. on the ground of the platform at 22 E. Roosevelt, according to Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He was pronounced dead less than 30 minutes later.

Authorities believe he fell out of his wheelchair during a medical emergency. There was no indication of trauma or foul play, police said.

Linneman was homeless, according to the medical examiner’s office. An autopsy was slated for Tuesday.

Area Central detectives were conducting a death investigation.
