Coroner: Former mayor DeVaney died of heart-related problem

Jasper County Coroner Martin Sauls says he believes, after today's autopsy, that DeVaney died of a heart-related problem. His heart was enlarged, and his lungs were full of fluid. There was no trauma from the accident.

Toxicology and histology results will be back in about two weeks. Histology is the microscopic examination of the heart and lungs.
