Huffing could be cause of Menomonie man's death

Posted:

Menomonie (WQOW) - The death of a Menomonie man is under investigation and police say huffing could be the cause.

Justin Meacham's body was found in his home Saturday with an aerosol can nearby. A neighbor told police that Meacham had a history of huffing aerosol fumes. The neighbor said Meacham recently bought several cans of aerosol products and also took a can from the neighbor's apartment.

Police say an autopsy was done but the exact cause of death won't be known until test results are ready. That will take several weeks.  

Foul play is not suspected, and police are handling it as a possible case of accidental huffing overdose.
