From staff reports

What appeared to be a “clean” Faster Horses event with no deaths reported, turned again to tragedy Monday as reports surfaced of a death that occurred early on July 25.

Cambridge Township Police Chief Jeff Paterson stated that his department received a call at 9:15 a.m. Monday regarding an unresponsive subject, a 48-year-old white male from White Lake, Mich. (northeast of Brighton).

Family and friends were with the man in a campground near Michigan International Speedway. Paterson said they were told that all was fine when they went to bed after the concert Sunday night. The man died in his sleep overnight.

Paterson said there were no signs of foul play. The investigation continues pending results of an autopsy. “We believe it will show a natural death,” he noted.

Cambridge Township Police was assisted by the Cambridge Township Fire Department and the Lenawee County medical examiner.
