MANHATTAN — The autopsy for a young clubgoer who was found mysteriously dead outside a Midtown hotspot was inconclusive, authorities said Sunday.

A spokeswoman for the Medical Examiner's office said that further study would be needed to determine the cause of death for Michael Lin, 27, including toxicology tests.

Lin, of Flushing, Queens, was found unconscious and bleeding from the mouth outside District 36, on West 36th Street around 3 a.m. Saturday.

He was rushed to Bellevue Hospital where he was declared dead.

According to the Daily News, Lin tumbled over a balcony at the club, a 14,000 square foot space inside a former clothing factory, and then was moved outside by club staff.

His injuries — a broken jaw and bruising on his body — was consistent with a fall, but investigators were still looking into the possibility of foul play, the News said.

Lin, a welder, had recently broken up with his girlfriend, according to the paper.

Cops could not immediately confirm the account and District 36 did not immediately respond to a request for comment from DNAinfo.
