The Scott county youth, Duane Dietz, a resident of a treatment facility operated by Famco. Inc., fell into the Mississippi river while fishing. An autopsy report said the youth fell after apparently having suffered an epileptic seizure.
Burns said the youth was reeevmg medication for his condition and that there was nothing wrong with allowing him to fish alone in the river.
