Missing Man Found Deceased

12062780_10208314577921941_407774523_oFamily members learned that missing Eureka man, Bruce Ewen, who hadn’t been in contact with them for a month, had been discovered deceased in the greenbelt area of Eureka on September 19.

The Coroner’s Office contacted the family to let them know that he had just been identified by his fingerprints.

“What the corner had told me was after the autopsy was performed there was no foul play involved. [H]e died from basically a heart attack and he did have a heart condition that was diagnosed last year so that made sense,” Randy Williamson, Ewen’s brother-in-law said.

Williamson said the Coroner was “very respectful and apologized numerous times in our conversation for having to notify us this way but they had no choice as they weren’t sure who he was until the fingerprints came back…He truly seemed to care.”

Williamson was grateful for all the support of the community and asked us to convey that. “I just want to make sure that there’s a big thank you for everybody that was out looking for him and have sent Glorie and I condolences today.”
