Natural Causes In Unattended Dawes Co Death

CHADRON – Dawes County Attorney/Coroner Vance Haug says a Dawes County man found dead in his home Tuesday afternoon apparently died of natural causes.

The body of 65-year old Eric Nixon was found by family members who came to check on him after they couldn’t reach him by phone.

Haug says an investigation of evidence at the scene, interviews of witnesses and medical personnel, and a review of Nixon’s medical history led to the determination he had died of natural causes.
