OAK CREEK MAN FOUND DEAD
OAK CREEKAn elderly man was found dead Thursday morning near his home in Oak Creek.
Harold Fulton, 88, apparently died of natural causes when he stepped outside his workshop located behind his house at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oak Creek Police Chief Tim Ling said Thursday.
A 9-year-old boy discovered Fulton on his way to school Thursday at 8:06 a.m., Ling said. The boy's mother immediately called the police, he said.
No foul play is suspected and no autopsy was ordered.
Fuller, a retired coal miner, lived by himself and had no immediate family. He served in World War II and received a Silver Star.
