ENID, Okla. — Police have identified a man who was found dead on Northern Oklahoma College’s Enid campus on Sunday morning, and authorities said his death does not appear suspicious.

Enid Police Department responded to report of a man lying on the ground on the northeast corner of University and Maine at 10:53 a.m. Sunday, according to Lt. Bryan Hart, and upon arriving found 64-year-old Bobby Gordineer, of Enid, dead. EPD detectives and the Medical Examiner’s Office were requested to the scene, and a preliminary investigation was conducted.

Gordineer was not experiencing homelessness, Hart said, and was not believed to be associated with NOC.

The cause of Gordineer’s death is unknown, Hart said, “but it doesn’t look suspicious” to police. Gordineer’s body was transported to Oklahoma City for an autopsy.

The area was blocked off for about five hours Sunday, and NOC released a safety alert on Sunday afternoon, asking faculty, staff, students and visitors to avoid the area.

The investigation is open pending the ME’s report, according to EPD.

This story has been updated to correct Gordineer’s age, according to EPD. A previous version of this story said Gordineer was 54 years old.
