Heart attack, not fire, killed Shawano man

Leader Reporter

Authorities now say a 62-year-old man found dead in his burned Shawano home May 9, actually died from a heart attack not due to injuries from the fire.

According to Shawano County Coroner Mike Jesse and Shawano Fire Chief Doug Knope, autopsy results show that Kenneth Trepanier of 1379 S. Andrews St., suffered a fatal heart attack.

When the attack occurred, the officials said he collapsed and a lit cigarette apparently caught some nearby furniture or other materials on fire, which eventually caused extensive damage to the home.
