COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio coroner still hasn't determined what killed a man whose two young daughters apparently spent several days in their apartment with his dead body.

Franklin County coroner Dr. Jan Gorniak tells The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1kKiU7s ) that she is waiting on toxicology tests to help determine what caused the death of 48-year-old Earl Davis.

Columbus police said officers forced their way into the apartment last Thursday night and found Davis' body. His two daughters, ages 5 and 6, were hiding upstairs.

A neighbor told police that Davis had been missing about a week. The girls were taken to a hospital where they were determined to be unharmed. Child welfare officials will likely place them with relatives.
