Male Who Died in Blizzard Identified

March 18, 2019

On Thursday, March 14, 2019, Search and Rescue responded a call for service in the 30,200 block of Antioch Road.  When they arrived on scene, they found a deceased male and a hypothermic female.  The female was treated on scene and is expected to survive.

The investigation revealed the male was last seen by the reporting party, when he left the home to go to an out building on the property to start a generator during the blizzard.  When the male did not come back, the female went to look for him and found him deceased.

The Coroner has identified the male as 68-year-old Harry Brantley .  We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the friends and family of Mr. Brantley. 

The cause and manner of death will be determined by the Coroner's Office once they have received all the information to make a ruling.
