VIRGINIA BEACH (AP) -- Virginia Beach police have identified a man who died in 2001 after collapsing in a restaurant.

Police said Monday that 58-year-old Samuel Ray Barnard died of natural causes.

Police say Barnard ran into a Burger King on Laskin Road on Oct. 16, 2001, and fell on the floor. He didn't say anything before he collapsed. Someone there performed CPR while employees called 911.

Barnard, who lived on Hunter Court in Va. Beach, was pronounced dead at a local hospital. He wasn't identified at the time because he had no identification and there was no vehicle in the restaurant's parking lot.

Police say new information led to Barnard's identification.
