Former Brown County Prosecutor Found Dead

Last updated on Thursday, February 7, 2013

(NASHVILLE) - Ben Hoff III, a former Brown County prosecutor, attorney for the Town of Nashville and a public defender, died Saturday, Feb. 2.

According to police, 61-year-old Hoff was found outside his Lake LaSalle home Saturday afternoon.

Brown County Coroner Rob Ayers says an autopsy conducted Monday revealed Hoff died from a massive heart attack.

Ayers says Hoff had a history of heart disease and that Saturday's cold temperatures were not a factor in his death.

Hoff had practiced law in Brown County for 20 years. He was elected Brown County prosecutor and served one term in the early 1990s. Hoff ran again in 2002 as an independent candidate.
