    Here is an update on the death investigation

    Foul play does not appear to have been a factor in the death of longtime KGO radio host Ray Taliaferro, whose body was discovered Sunday in the Kentucky town where he went missing on Nov. 10, authorities said.

    Police in Paducah, Kentucky, issued a news release sharing initial results from an autopsy performed Tuesday, but they noted that the report has not been finalized.

    “Preliminary autopsy results confirm Paducah police detectives’ initial findings that foul play is not indicated in the death of Ray Taliaferro,” the release said. “Exposure to the elements may have been a factor in the California man’s death.”
