Cause of death for Lafayette Township's trustee remains 'undetermined'

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - During a press conference Monday regarding the death of Lafayette Township trustee Bryon Macron, the coroner and Medina County Sheriff's Department said a cause of death is still "undetermined."

Capt. David Centner, with the Medina County Sheriff's Office, said there was "nobody else involved in the death of trustee Bryon Macron."

Macron was facing financial debt at the time of his death, according to Capt. Centner.

He was also involved in some personal behaviors that his family was not aware of, but additional details regarding the types of behavior were not discussed.

It's important to note, leading up to Mr. Macron's death, that Mr. Macron himself had incurred a considerably large amount of financial debt, along with other personal behaviors that he was engaged in, unknown to his family and friends," Capt. Centner said.

Medina County coroner Lisa Deranek said alcohol was present in Macron's system. Six stab wounds were discovered in his body during an autopsy, but none of those wounds are believed to be solely responsible for Macron's death. There was no major bruising present on his body and no fractures evident.

Macron went missing in Dec. 2016. His decomposing body was discovered months later in February by a kayaker submerged in Chippewa Lake.

The sheriff's office is still investigating the incident.
