CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Police in Cedar Rapids found a Cirque Du Soleil worker dead in his hotel room Friday night.

A spokesperson for the traveling show confirmed the man worked for Cirque Du Soleil, although did not make it clear what his role was.  He said the death does not appear to be suspicious, and does not believe anyone else is in danger.  However, they are awaiting autopsy results.

Cirque Du Soleil's "Algeria" show is playing at the US Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids.  Friday afternoon staff members informed hotel staff the man had not shown up for work.  That's when police were notified.

The man's name has not been released.
