Unattended Chadron Death Ruled Natural Causes

    Dawes County Attorney/Coroner Vance Haug says a Chadron man found dead in his home late Tuesday morning died of natural causes. 

      60-year old James Meints was non-responsive when found by family members and was pronounced at the scene by first responders.

       Haug says an investigation of the scene, witness interviews, a review of medical reports, and consultation with medical personnel led him to determine that Mr Meints died of natural causes.
