Scruggs’ roommate found the young man dead at about 7:30 a.m., said Lt. Mike Campbell, of the Sandusky Police Department. Scruggs suffered from diabetes, Campbell said. A police report said Scruggs was found dead at Cedar Point Commons, on the first block of Cedar Point Drive.
Erie County coroner Dr. Brian Baxter came to the scene and arranged for the body to be transported to Lucas County for an autopsy, the police report said.
Police released Scruggs’ name Saturday afternoon after notifying his family.
