Police in Oklahoma have said that their official inquiry into Aubrey McClendon's death revealed no evidence that pointed to suicide, according to multiple reports.

Oklahoma City Police spokesman Capt. Paco Balderrama told NPR: "Our investigators found no information which would compel us to believe this was anything other than a vehicular accident."

On March 2, the SUV McClendon was driving collided with a bridge at a speed of ~88 miles-per-hour. The preliminary investigation revealed that he was not wearing a seatbelt.

The crash occurred 24 hours after McClendon was indicted for lease-bid rigging by federal prosecutors. Charges which he denied. 

The Oklahoma medical examiner has ruled McClendon's death as accidental. The final report noted that his death was caused by "multiple blunt force trauma" and that there was no alcohol in his system at the time.
