Lone Rock death not a homicide

Posted: Updated:
LONE ROCK, Wis. (WKOW) -- The Richard County Sheriff's Office announced late Thursday the death of a man found Tuesday in lone Rock is not considered a homicide.

Sheriff Darrell Berglin, in a news release, says his office is nearing the end of its preliminary investigation and has seen results of the autopsy performed Wednesday.

53-year-old Richard Calandra was found dead in the snow outside his home early Tuesday. The Sheriff's Office says it believes no one else was there at the time of his death.

Sheriff Berglin says the investigation found Calandra had been drinking Monday and appeared to be extremely drunk when he left a Lone Rock tavern around 8:30 p.m. Monday. One witness reports seeing him leaning against his residence around two hours later. The Sheriff's Office believes he repeatedly tried and failed to get into the home.
