Man Died Of Natural Causes Before Tree Stand Hanging

Last updated on Tuesday, December 4, 2007

(COLUMBUS) - The Bartholomew County coroner says a Greensburg hunter did not strangle to death in his harness.

Police had said 52-year-old Ronnie Tempest got the harness wrapped around his neck while climbing into his tree stand, lost his balance and hanged himself.

But an autopsy reveals Tempest died of natural causes before he fell.
