MAMMOTH LAKES, Calif., April 9 (UPI) -- Professional snowboarder Chelone Miller, younger brother of Olympic skier Bode Miller, was found dead in his van in Mammoth Lakes, Calif., authorities said.

On Sunday afternoon Miller, 29, was discovered in the van in which he lived by a friend, who notified police. The Mono County Sheriff's Office confirmed the death Monday, saying the cause of death is unknown, pending autopsy, but foul play is not suspected.

Miller had a history of seizures after a 2005 motorcycle accident left him in a coma for 11 days. He recently took steps to qualify for the U.S. Olympics team in snowboardcross, ESPN reported.
