According to Coroner Roger Wheller, Jay Fosbrink of Medora died of positional asphyxiation.

An autopsy was conducted by pathologist Wes Whitler on Sunday at Schneck Medical Center in Seymour.

Positional asphyxiation occurs when a person’s body position prevents one from breathing, causing the person to suffocate.
