Apparent heart attack claims Granville hunter, 29

HENNEPIN — A 29-year-old Granville man has died of an apparent heart attack.

Jacob I. Bouxsein was setting up a duck blind south of Hennepin and west of Route 26 in Hennepin Township just after 6 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 6, with other hunters when he suffered a medical problem, according to Putnam County Death Investigator Bob Cofoid.

Preliminary autopsy results indicated Bouxsein suffered a heart attack and died at the scene. Cofoid’s office is awaiting final autopsy results and toxicology is pending, which may take anywhere from four to six weeks.
