MARIAVILLE, N.Y. -- A New Jersey man was found dead at the Camp Bisco music festival in Mariaville Wednesday morning.

According to State Police, William Graumann of New Milford, New Jersey, was a volunteer at the festival, there to set up concession stands.

Witnesses say the night before Graumann died, he was slurring his words and having difficulty walking. Officials found a mixture of drugs in Graumann's tent, including marijuana, hydrocodone and xanax pills.

An autopsy has been performed at Ellis Hospital and toxicology reports are pending, but police do not expect foul play.

Other campers say it's unfortunate that accidents like this happen, but they're not going to let it ruin the experience.

"It's unfortunate that there is this sub-culture that's attached to it. I come here for the music and the concerts," Raleigh, North Carolina resident Casey Calvin said.

Police say they do a thorough search for contraband in every car that comes to the festival. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
