The Grant County Coroners’ Office is investigating the death of a Marion man who was found dead in the snow Wednesday evening.
A passerby contacted Marion police when after finding 71-year-old Lawrence Watson deceased and covered in snow at the bottom of the steps outside his home in the 1300 block of South Norton Avenue. Deputy Coroner Chris Butche says Watson apparently had a history of falling and a history of heavy drinking.
Toxicology tests are pending.
