Mysterious death of man dropped off at hospital

Authorities have released the name of the Fort Payne resident who died after being dropped off at a hospital.

Ostell Looney, 44, was taken to the Gadsden Regional Medical Center Saturday.

The person who left him at the hospital claimed that Looney had been assaulted, but a preliminary autopsy does not support his statement.

However, detectives have been able to confirm that Looney collapsed after he got into a fight with someone on Springdale Avenue.

It could take several weeks for final autopsy results to arrive.
