Preliminary autopsy report says Lafayette Township trustee had 6 stab wounds, cause of death still pending

LAFAYETTE TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- A review of the preliminary autopsy report of former Lafayette Township Trustee Bryon Macron, whose body was found in Chippewa Lake last month, shows he had six stab wounds to the neck, shoulder and forearms.

The Medina County coroner released the report Thursday morning.

The deepest wound was on the right side of his neck but did not hit any vital veins. One stab wound, on the left side of the neck, was listed as superficial.

The report also shows there was nothing in his airways. The report does not say how long he may have been in the water.

The report also does not state how he died.  The official cause of death is pending. Coroner officials are still waiting for toxicology.

Investigators previously said there were signs of an altercation, including blood, in his office.

Officials hope to have a final cause of death in a few more weeks.
