NEW BEDFORD - A New Bedford man was found dead Monday at a Hawthorn Street home.

The Bristol County District Attorney's Office says the 41-year-old man was found in the home at approximately 4:44 p.m. on Monday. Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for the District Attorney's Office, says the cause of death is a suspected drug overdose.

Miliote did not disclose if any evidence of drug use was found near the body, or if the man was pronounced dead at the scene or transported to a nearby hospital. A toxicology will be performed on the body to determine the exact cause of death.
