PADUCAH, Ky. -- Foul play is not suspected in the death of a California radio host.

A preliminary autopsy on Ray Taliaferro was conducted Tuesday in Madisonville, KY. Final results are not complete, but officials say exposure to the elements likely contributed to the 79-year-olds death.

Taliaferro went missing from Massac County on Nov. 10. He had been in the area with his wife.

On Sunday, two teenagers found Taliaferro's body in a wooded area near S. 25th Street and Brooks Stadium Drive.

The investigation is ongoing.

PADUCAH, KY. --  A death investigation is underway in Paducah after a body is found near Brooks Stadium. 

The Paducah Police Department would only tell News 3 that the coroner and a detective were at the scene. But the family of Ray Taliaferro, the San Francisco radio host who went missing last month, wrote Sunday night on a GoFundMe page that the body found is their missing loved one.

It also reads the family is in the process of working with the police to learn the matters surrounding Taliaferro's death.  More details are expected to be released.
