The Clark County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday identified the man whose body was found in a van outside an Orchards apartment complex earlier this week as Carlos Gerardo Cerdas.

There was no address given for the 53-year-old man, said Sgt. Fred Neiman, sheriff’s office spokesman.

The body was found midday Monday in front of the Meadow Wood Apartments at 6811 N.E. 121st Ave. near the intersection of Northeast Fourth Plain Road and state Highway 503.

Investigators found no obvious signs of a cause of death or foul play, Neiman said earlier in the week.

The Clark County Medical Examiner is still investigating the cause of death.
