LISBON – The death of a man at a gathering known as PLUR Stock 2013, which was held this weekend on Pine Hollow Road in Elkrun Township, is under investigation by the coroner’s office.

The sheriff’s department was contacted about a possible drug overdose at 5:48 a.m. Saturday. When they arrived, a 24-year-old man was found dead on the ground next to a tent. Witnesses told deputies the man had been acting erratically and had been jumping into a campfire before he died.
