Authorities probe death of man found in B.G.


BOWLING GREEN -- Authorities today continued to investigate the death of a Fort Loramie, Ohio, man who was found unresponsive Sunday at a house in the 300 block of North Enterprise Street in Bowling Green.

The cause of death of Zachary Eilerman, 22, remains under investigation, according to the Wood County Coroner's Office. Autopsy results have not been released, a coroner's office spokesman said.

Maj. Tony Hetrick, Bowling Green deputy police chief, said people who live at the residence told police they weren't home late Saturday -- early Sunday. When they returned about 2:15 a.m. Sunday, they reportedly found Mr. Eilerman passed out on a couch, unresponsive, and called 911.

A short time later, police and emergency personnel arrived about the same time and found Mr. Eilerman not breathing, the deputy police chief said. CPR was attempted but was unsuccessful, he said.

People at the house told police Mr. Eilerman was a visiting friend. They reportedly saw him drinking at the house about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, which was the last time they saw him alive, Major Hetrick said.

Mr. Eilerman's last known address was in Fort Loramie, according to police.
