Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- We now know how a man found dead in a large tool box in Grayson County passed away.

According to the Grayson County Coroner's office, the official cause of death is "multimodal asphyxiation" -- a form of death that would involve starving the body of oxygen using two or more different methods at the same time.

Kentucky State Police say a woman stumbled upon the decomposing body Tuesday while walking near Spring Fork Creek. That's near Lone Hill Road in Grayson County.

His name has not been released.
