Pathologist says man died of natural causes after fight
HASTINGS, Neb. (AP) — A pathologist says a 72-year-old Hastings man died of natural causes — a heart attack — after a physical altercation.
Authorities say Stephen Cash died at a Hastings hospital July 10. He’d been taken there after being stricken following a fight with another man over ownership of a bicycle. Toxicology test results are still pending.
Police arrested the other man on suspicion of assault by mutual consent. Online court records don’t yet show that he’s been formally charged.
