A man found dead late Friday night in a Davenport gas station bathroom has been identified as Timothy James Byrne, 29, of Davenport. Police say he died from an apparent drug overdose.

Davenport police were called to the Shell Gas Station, 6268 N Brady St., at 10:41 p.m. Friday and discovered the body in the restroom.

A preliminary police investigation indicates the death likely was drug-related "due to evidence located in close proximity to the deceased," Assistant Davenport Police Chief Donald Schaeffer in a news release.

An autopsy and toxicology screen will be performed to determine the cause of death, the release states.
