VAIL, Colorado “-An autopsy conducted Tuesday showed that the 48-year-old man whose body was found in his Vail, Colorado apartment Sunday died of natural causes.

Eagle County Coroner Kara Bettis said David Mallory, who recently moved to Vail, died of upper gastric hemorrhaging, a common cause of death associated with alcoholism. Mallory had a history of alcoholism, Bettis said.

Originally from New York, Mallory came to Vail two weeks ago and was living alone at the Homestake Condominiums on Vail View Drive.

His father called police worried about him when he had not heard from his son in more than a week.
