A 43-year-old homeless man died of natural causes before a West Side storage
building collapsed on him, the Cook County medical examiner's office said
Monday.

Reginald Howard, whose last known address was the 1200 block of South Karlov
Avenue, died of pneumonia and hypertension, the medical examiner's office
said.

A spokesman said he could not comment on how long Howard had been dead.

Police investigating a collapsed building at 1259 S. Kedvale Ave. behind
House of Prayer church at 11:15 p.m. Sunday found a body with no
identification. The building might have become unstable during Sunday's
storm, police said.
