The Associated Press reports that a custodial worker was found dead on Tuesday at Kennedy Space Center's launch pad 39A.
The male worker was found Tuesday afternoon in a building located under the liquid oxygen tank at the same pad used for the final shuttle liftoff last summer.

NASA spokesman Allard Beutel says no cause of death was immediately known, and the man's identification was not made public pending notification of next of kin.

The man worked for a contractor that performs custodial work at the space center.

Florida Today reports that the man found dead on Tuesday appears to have died of natural causes, according to the man's employer.
The unidentified custodial worker, described as a man in his 50s, was found about 2:15 p.m. in a support building near the liquid oxygen storage tank at launch pad 39A, KSC officials said. The man worked for Brevard Achievement Center of Rockledge.

"Regarding the cause of death, while we are still waiting on the medical examiner's office to confirm, all indications are that he died of natural causes," reads a statement on Brevard Achievement Center's website.

The man's family requested he not be identified. Brevard County sheriff's and KSC officials said they did not have the man's name and confirmed the death was not suspicious.
