(ANGOLA) - There's new information revealed about the body of a man, found covered in silver paint in Steuben County.

Authorities say 41-year-old Charles Ringler of Metz spent his final hours drinking and partying with friends. Neighbors say it wasn't unusual to find him passed out in his front yard.

It's believed his friends found him unconscious Wednesday, and covered him in silver paint as a practical joke.

That gag, that may have gone too far. Some fear Ringler may have been allergic to the paint he was exposed to in his final hours.

A toxicology report will show the exact role alcohol played in his death.
