"The major drivers of this are decreases in numerous leading causes of death, such as heart disease, cancer and stroke", Cunningham told NPR's Rob Stein.

Gorniak said the decomposing body was positively identified using dental records.

The Atlanta Police Department announced the results of the medical examiner over Twitter. We extend our condolences to his family and loved ones during this hard time. "We are processing this incomprehensible loss and request time and space to grieve".

O'Connor has stressed that investigators have not uncovered any evidence that Cunningham's promotion snub was directly linked to his disappearance. Posts online presented Cunningham as a flu vaccine whistleblower. The rumors were debunked by police and his family. The site where the body was found was not far from Cunningham's house, said Major Michael O'Connor of the Atlanta Police Dept.'s Major Crimes Section. However, the exact means by which Dr. Cunningham got to the river may never be revealed. Cunningham lived near the river where his body was found and was an avid jogger, and he had been wearing a jogging outfit. Cunningham's vehicle was also parked on the property.

"But since the investigation is still open we do not yet have a manner of death of whether it's an accident, a suicide or anything other than that", Chief Medical Examiner Jan Gorniak said. There were no signs of trauma on the body.

"We may never be able to tell you how he got into the river", Maj. Fishermen spotted the doctor's body and alerted authorities.

Fire department officials said he was found in an area inaccessible by foot. It could have been there or it could have moved there later, he said.

Rescuers could not tell how long the body had been in the river.

"The most unusual factor in this case is that every single belonging that we are aware of was located in the residence", O'Connor said. But the CDC disputed that, saying that Cunningham been promoted to commander effective July 1 "in recognition of his exemplary performance in the U.S. Public Health Service". It gained so much attention that he CDC had to release a statement condemning the reports as false. In his home, they found his keys, phone, wallet containing his credit and debit cards and identification, and they even found his passport.

Police said Cunningham had been disappointed about being passed over for a promotion in February.

He was last seen leaving work early after telling his colleagues that he didn't feel well. He also called her at 9:12 a.m. and she also didn't answer. He did not leave a message.

O'Connor addressed that rumor last month, noting that Cunningham was with the chronic disease unit and not the infectious disease unit.

He was also well regarded in the community, where he earned the Outstanding Atlanta award in 2014 in recognition of his "service, leadership and achievements of Atlanta young professionals" and named to the Atlanta Business Chronicle's 40 under 40 a year ago.

Almost two weeks later, the CDC said that information was untrue.

Friends also found the disappearance troublingly out of character.

His CDC biography says he was a "team lead" with the Division of Population Health and had deployed for several public health emergencies "including Superstorm Sandy, Ebola, and Zika".

Friends said Cunningham was smart and caring, with a big grin and big hugs to match.

"We've shared that with the detectives, and we've kept that as a private matter", his father said. Timothy's family stated that he had a conversation with them the day before he vanished, that had left them concerned. He held two degrees from Harvard University. Each time, they felt heart-wrenching agony, they said, only to learn it wasn't their son.

"It takes you to a place that the light is not shining in", Terrell Cunningham told CNN.
