http://www.dailyherald.com/news/2017101 ... y-mom-saysDan's exact cause of death won't be determined for a few weeks, said Dan Pruett, chief deputy coroner in Jefferson County, Colorado. They're doing tests to see if the snake's venom went directly into his artery or if he had some type of allergic or cardiac reaction.
"It's very unusual, and scary," Pruett said, adding that in nearly 30 years as a coroner, he's never seen a snakebite death.
I've been following this since the day it happened, but haven't yet seen enough details to make any sense of it. It could just be those reporting failing to recognize that the outcome was out of the ordinary and thus failing to address why that might be. There could also be something the family doesn't want to make public. Whatever the reason, I always like to know as many of the facts as possible so that I can adjust my understanding of the risks. I gave up on that as pertains to this incident.outdoor_lover wrote:If there wasn't some Underlying Cause, then the Timeline or the Facts of this Story might be wrong.
