A man whose body was found during a game of hide-and-seek appears to have died accidentally, The Herald Times reported Tuesday.

Early autopsy results indicate that 52-year old Michael Broll was probably intoxicated at the time of his death. Police said it appeared that he fell, resulting in his death.

Two children were playing hide-and-seek when they happened upon Broll’s remains. The children reportedly noticed the man’s feet hanging out from under a trailer home around 8 p.m. Sunday.

How he ended up underneath the trailer is still a mystery, though.
