A man whose body was found outside his Nicholasville business Tuesday morning died of natural causes, according to the Jessamine County Coroner's office.
Jessamine County Coroner Michael Hughes said an autopsy in Frankfort on Wednesday morning confirmed that no foul play was involved in the death of Thamer Hasan, 41.
Hasan, who was from Lexington, was found by his brother about 11:15 a.m. Tuesday at the front entrance of Hadi Automobile Sales on North Main Street in Nicholasville. Hasan and his two brothers operated the business.
Hughes said Hasan was last seen alive in the early hours of Tuesday morning, and he probably had been dead six or seven hours before his body was found.
