Vermont State police have identified the man who was found dead in a tent at the end of last weekend’s Phish festival concerts. State police say a fingerprint comparison confirmed that the man was 25-year-old Ian Niles Gardiner, of Bristol, Connecticut. A friend of Gardiner’s reported him missing when he had not returned from the farewell concert, which concluded early Monday morning.
An autopsy has been conducted to determine his cause of death, but the results have not been released. Police have said they do not believe the death was suspicious.
