notified and the man was pronounced dead at the scene, a detective

An autopsy is set for today.

The name of the 66-year-old man, whose passport shows he was a U.S.
citizen, was not being released by authorities pending notification of
his family. The passenger had been scheduled to get on another flight

After the plane had been moved from Terminal 5 to another terminal for
cleaning, a crew found the man in a bathroom, Smith said.
