Fremont police say toxicology results show a teenager who went missing and was later found dead in some woods died of an insulin overdose.

Sixteen-year-old Brandon Kamphaus was last seen getting ready for school on Sept. 28, but he never showed up. His vehicle was found six blocks from his home. Search crews found his body two days later.

Police Chief Jeff Elliott says Thursday that toxicology results show Kamphaus, who was diabetic, died from "toxic effects of exogenous insulin," or an insulin overdose.

Elliott says no foul play is suspected. He declined further comment.
