Medical examiner: 196 deaths in 2015

The McLeod County Board of Commissioners received the 2015 medical examiner’s report at its Tuesday meeting.
The report showed that there was a total of 196 deaths in McLeod County in 2015.
Of those, 167 were deaths of natural causes, of which 63 were registered hospice patients.
There were four deaths related to motor vehicle accidents — a 40-year-old bicyclist was struck by a motor vehicle, a 91-year-old woman crashed into a building, a 46-year-old man hit a semi-tractor trailer and a 24-year-old driver crossed the center line of a road and hit another vehicle. Alcohol was a factor in the 24-year-old’s death, according to Dr. A. Quin Strobl of the Midwest Medical Examiners Office.
