FREMONT, Ohio (AP) - As authorities continue to search for answers in the death of an Ohio concertgoer, hundreds turned out for a vigil at his former high school to remember him.

About 500 friends and members of the community showed up for the candlelight vigil Thursday night at Fremont Ross High School in Sandusky County for 22-year-old Cory Barron.

Barron's body was found Tuesday in a county landfill in Oberlin, 30 miles west of Cleveland's Progressive Field, where he was last seen at a country music concert July 18. Authorities said Thursday that an autopsy was inconclusive, and more tests are required to determine the cause of death.

Cleveland police say Barron may have fallen down a five- or six-story garbage chute at Progressive Field and landed in a large waste container.
