Scottsbluff man dies of natural causes after discovering burglary
An autopsy shows that a Scottsbluff man died of natural causes after discovering a burglary at his house Saturday night.
Scottsbluff Police Captain Brian Wasson says as officers were responding to the burglary call they received another call from the wife of 28 year old Fernando Wilson. When officers got to the home Wilson was unresponsive. Wilson was taken to Regional West Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. No foul play is suspected.
Wasson says the burglary was reported to Police around 10:15 p.m. Police were told the couple had found items out of place and believed someone had entered the home. Police say items taken in the burglary are still being identified and that there are no suspects at this time.
Police say they are seeing an increase in burglaries as the weather heats up. They remind residents to keep their homes and vehicles locked, place valuable purchases in the trunk, report suspicious activity, and let Police and/or a neighbor know when you are leaving on vacation so they can watch your property while you are gone.
