Police investigating suspicious death in southern Iowa

LEON, Iowa (AP) — Police in the southern Iowa city of Leon are investigating what authorities are calling a suspicious death.

Leon police, with help from the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, responded to a home Sunday morning after two people found a man’s body.

The body was identified Monday as 53-year-old Steven Dabb, of Leon. The body was in a home where Dabb lived that had recently been destroyed by fire.

Police say the Office of the State Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy, which didn’t find “major trauma” to the body. Toxicology tests that could indicate the cause of death could take six to eight weeks.

Decatur County Attorney Lisa Jeanes says there is no indication the public is at danger.

Leon is a city of 2,000 people, about 60 miles south of Des Moines.
