    Autopsy: Man punched on Bend trail died of natural causes

    September 13, 2018

    BEND, Ore. (AP) — Autopsy results indicate that a filmmaker who was punched while hiking with his dog outside Bend died of natural causes and not from the assault.

    The Bulletin reports 69-year-old Clemens Schenk died in late July, leading authorities to investigate if the death was connected to the assault in mid-May.

    Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel says the state medical examiner’s office determined Schenk’s death was from a burst aneurysm in his brain and not related to the assault.

    Schenk was hit in the head by a man while walking his dog off-leash. He died two month later after his health quickly declined.
