Kentucky Death at Bonnaroo Music Festival

A central Kentucky man has died at a music festival in Tennessee.

Authorities say it will probably be several weeks before medical examiners determine why 25-year-old Cody Conover of Lancaster died at the Bonnaroo Music Festival at Manchester, Tennessee.

Officials with the Coffee County sheriff's department say Conover was taken to the United Regional Hospital in Manchester Friday with no visible signs of trauma. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Investigators say they are looking into both drugs and heat as possible causes of death.

The body was taken to the Tennessee medical examiner's office in Nashville for an autopsy.

This is the sixth death at the festival, which is in its sixth year and is being held on a 700-acre farm. All 80-thousand tickets were sold.

Musical acts scheduled to perform include The Police, The White Stripes, Tool, Widespread Panic, Wilco, Ben Harper and The Flaming Lips. The festival began Thursday night and Sunday night.
