An autopsy is planned Friday of a Burlington man found dead in his home Thursday, three days after he had an alleged altercation with police.

Vermont State Police say they will investigate the man’s death, which authorities say does not appear to be related to the man’s confrontation with Burlington police officers Monday in a parking lot at the UVM Medical Center.

Burlington police were called to the hospital for a report of a disorderly 54-year-old man who has been identified as Douglas Kilburn, 54, of Burlington.

Kilburn allegedly assaulted an unnamed officer before being brought under control.

The man, who has not been identified, was treated at UVMMC and released Tuesday. Police charged him with assaulting an officer, disorderly conduct and trespassing.

State police said Burlington police found the man deceased in his home Thursday afternoon.

The autopsy will be performed by the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office in Burlington.
