Coroner: Baumgarten Death from Pulmonary Embolism

The Sangamon County coroner now says Menard County State’s Attorney Ken Baumgarten died of a pulmonary embolism… related to an accident at his home last month.


Coroner Cinda Edwards had initially stated that Baumgarten died of natural causes Friday night at Memorial Medical Center, but issued the updated finding late Monday.


Baumgarten sustained broken bones in both feet last month when a horse fell on him… which could have caused a blood clot that traveled to his lungs.


Visitation is now planned for this Friday from 5 to 7pm, followed by funeral services the next day, both at Athens Christian Church.
