ALTAMONT — An autopsy of a St. Elmo man revealed he died from a head injury as a result of a fall into a parking lot next to Luke's Bar and Grill in Altamont.
Prior to the fall, Dean Buzzard, 46, was on a rooftop patio above Luke's Bar and Grill, according to Effingham County Coroner Duane Guffey. His unresponsive body was found before 6 a.m. Friday.
“We still do not believe there was any criminal activity involved in the accident,” said Guffey.
Altamont Police Department, Effingham County Coroner's Office and the Illinois State Police are still investigating the incident. Toxicology tests and a final autopsy report are expected in six to eight weeks.
