HARRISBURG -- An autopsy is still pending on the body of Mike Jenkins, one of the strongest men in the world, who died in his sleep on Thanksgiving morning.

The Dauphin County coroner's office said Wednesday afternoon that results of Jenkins' autopsy won't be available for at least another week.

Jenkins won the 2012 Arnold Strongman Classic and finished fourth at this year's World's Strongest Man competition in China.

Jenkins, 31, died suddenly at his home in Dauphin County. He was also co-owner of CrossFit Gamma in Hershey.

Jenkins, who was 6'6" and around 400 lbs., also won the 2012 Giants Live in Australia and the 2010 Arnold Strongman amateur event.
