An autopsy was completed Sunday on the body of a man found in Ballona Creek in Marina del Rey, but a cause of death has yet to be determined, said Lt. Joe Bale of the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.

The body of Los Angeles resident Kevin Brent Cohn, 32, was discovered Saturday at about 9:15 a.m., near a bicycle path along the flood-control channel, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Bale did not know why the cause of death had been deferred, but said the most common reason was due to the need to perform toxicology tests.
