DOVER - The Dover Police Department is continuing its investigation into the death of a Dover man found unresponsive at the homeless shelter inside the Garrison Hotel last week.

The body of Travis Bisson, 23, was found around 4:15 p.m. after a response from Dover Police, Fire and Rescue.

While the cause and manner of the death will ultimately be determined by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, based on the investigation to date, Bisson's death appears to be drug related.

If in fact this death is due to a drug overdose, it is the 15th in Dover in 2020. Dover had nine suspected drug related deaths in 2019.
