The exact cause of death of a local contractor has not been determined,
according to the Hamilton County Coroners Office.
Michael E. Flint, 36, of Osgood, was taken by helicopter to a Cincinnati
hospital after he collapsed outside of a Greensburg bar last Friday
According to information from the Greensburg Police Department,
Flint had been involved in a scuffle inside the Ironhorse Roadhouse.
A news release from the Greensburg Police noted that witnesses inside
the Ironhorse said Flint and his wife were inside the bar when an
argument ensued between the two of them. Flint exited the
Ironhorse and returned minutes later and two males were allegedly
battered in a fight initiated by Flint. The news release went
on to say according to witnesses Flint was assisted
in leaving the bar and when he was outside, fell to the ground unresponsive.
Greensburg Police Chief Bill Meyerrose said the incident occurred
just after 10:00 p.m. on Friday, August 24. He said when officers
arrived at the scene they found Flint unresponsive. EMS was called
with Flint ultimately being taken to a Cincinnati hospital where
he died Sunday, August 26, about 8:30 p.m.
According to Terry Daley from the Hamilton County Coroners
Office, the cause of Flints death is pending the results of
the toxicology report. He told The Versailles Republican it could
take weeks to get that information.
Flint ran a contracting business with several of his customers saying
they were in shock when they heard the news. I went to school
with him (Flint) since elementary school, and just couldnt
believe what I was hearing, noted Tim Christman II, of Madison.
He said Flint was a great guy who would do anything for anybody.
He would go out of his way to help people. I think I can speak
for anyone who really knew him and say he had a great sense of humor.
He could make anybody laugh. Christman said Flint will be
missed by many who had the opportunity to get to know him. He
just had a great personality.
Funeral services for Flint are being held today, August 30, at Neals
Funeral Home in Osgood.
