A Bonnaroo attendee was found dead Friday morning on the venue’s grounds marking the 13th death at the music and arts festival in its 17-year history, officials said.

The Coffee County Sheriff’s Office identified the man as Michael Donivan Craddock, Jr., 32 of Mount Juliet, Tenn.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Lucky Knott said about 10:30 a.m., the sheriff’s office responded to the festival’s campground for a medical call. When deputies and investigators arrived at the scene, they found Craddock dead inside a vehicle.

Sheriff Steve Graves said foul play is not suspected in the death. Graves said Craddock’s body has been sent to the medical examiner office in Nashville,  for an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death. His death is the only known fatality so far at the festival, authorities said.
