Man found dead; no foul play suspected
The Decatur Police Department and the Adams County Coroner's Department jointly reported today that a city man, Kevin A. Brantly, 53, was found dead at his home on Tuesday morning.
In addition, his wife, Laura "Vicky" Brantly, 52, was found in the house in poor condition and was taken first to Adams Memorial Hospital, then flown by helicopter to Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne at 10 a.m. This morning, a Parkview spokeswoman said only that Mrs. Brantly is not on the hospital's list of in-patients.
Police Chief Ken Ketzler and Deputy Coroner Leslie Cook said the incident does not involve foul play, but further investigation is under way to determine what caused the husband's death and the wife's medical problems.
An autopsy of Kevin Brantly's body was performed today, according to Cook.
Police were called to the Brantly home in the Village Green Apartments on Bollman St. around 9:30 a.m., said Ketzler, with the Adams County Emergency Medical Service also dispatched.
