Schuylkill County Pathologist Dr. Richard Bindie is awaiting results of toxicology tests before making a determination as to how and why a Coaldale teenager died.

"We're waiting for toxicology. We should have it within a week," Bindie said early Thursday.

A family member found the body of Cody Wentz, 19, in his bed at the family home on Bull Run Street at about 1:30 p.m. Nov. 29.

Cody was the son of Lisa M. (Wentz), wife of William Shiffert of Coaldale, with whom he resided, and Terry L. Wentz and his wife, Jennifer, of Lehighton.
