MERIDEN — Police on Monday said the investigation into the death of a 37-year-old man on Hanover Road last month is closed and no criminal conduct was found. 

Thomas Oldani lived in a second floor apartment at 763 Hanover Road. A representative from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said the results of an autopsy for Oldani are pending further study. 

On Monday, Sgt. Darrin McKay said police have closed the investigation, adding that no illicit substances were being made or trafficked in the apartment. Police have not released any details on what substances were found.

Emergency crews responded to the apartment on Jan. 23 around 11:55 a.m. for reports of an unresponsive man on the kitchen floor. Oldani was later pronounced dead. Hazardous chemicals and substances were found in the apartment, police said at the time. Crews were on scene until just before 8 p.m. Officers were sent to the hospital as a precaution due to possible exposure to the chemicals.

The FBI, federal Drug Enforcement Agency, state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and the Meriden Health Department also responded.

According to DEEP, testing revealed trace amounts of chemicals in the apartment. Officials did not disclose the type of chemicals.
