MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) – Police are investigating the death of a former professional wrestler whose body was found in a parked car near his closed wrestling academy in Manchester, N.H.

Investigators say they found the body of 32-year-old Steven Bisson, who went by the name Steve Bradley, Thursday morning. Officials say Bisson was indicted on heroin possession charges last month.

An autopsy was inconclusive, but police say it does not appear foul play was involved.

Bisson participated in non-televised matches with World Wrestling Entertainment and in 2002, opened the Top Rope Pro Wrestling Academy.

Lordsofpain.net, a wrestling Web site, said Bradley’s academy had closed within the past six months.
