The Lorain County Coroner's Office expects the investigation into the death of Cory Barron to take weeks.

An autopsy has been done, but getting toxicology tests back could take some time. So a final ruling on a cause of death will be put off until then.

Cory Barron disappeared during a concert at Progressive Field, and his body was found Tuesday at a landfill in Lorain County.

Cleveland Police believe he fell down a trash chute at the stadium. Now homicide detectives are trying to figure out if it was an accident, or if foul play was involved.

Police believe Barron fell several stories down into a dumpster. The trash chute is in a tower off the left field corner of the stadium that is used for maintenance and housekeeping supplies and equipment.

We've learned it is not unusual for doors to that area to be unlocked, but someone would basically have to crawl to get into the chute.

Cory Barron fell into a dumpster with a trash compacter, and we're told a body could go unnoticed. A person can't just open the lid of that trash container in the basement.

A worker at the landfill found the body after a truck dumped a container that had come from Progressive Field. Investigators say the stadium trash had been picked up hours before the body was found, and the truck makes a direct trip from the stadium to the landfill.

Police are reviewing video, but the stadium has dozens and dozens of cameras.

Police may need to interview crowds of concert-goers and workers. 

A vigil will be held Thursday evening at 8:30 at Fremont Ross High School.
