Man Collapses, Dies in Parking Lot on Highway
A Lake Charles state revenue service worker, after pulling his automobile to a halt in the parking lot of the Green Frog restaurant on the edge of town, collapsed and died today.
After viewing the body, Calcasieu parish coroner, Dr. Harry S. Snatic, said Fred A. Tieman, 59, apparently died from a heart attack.
The body was first sighted by Mrs. Forest Richard at about 9:30 a.m., Calcasieu parish deputy sheriff Hay Burnett and Charles Ellis, of the identification bureau, said. City police were first called and the message was relayed to the sheriff's office who dispatched the investigators.
Officers said Tieman was apparently
traveling west, turned into the parking lot, and collapsed to the ground after walking to the rear of his automobile.
From papers in the man's wallet, his address was listed as 1801 Fourth street. He was a revenue inspector for the Louisiana state Revenue Service.
Dr. Snatic said Tieman had been known to have heart trouble.
Tieman was a native of New York and lived in Lake Charles and southwest Louisiana since 1917.
He was a veteran of World War I, and a member of the American Legion and the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd.
Survivors include his wife, Mrs. Irma Lock Tieman; a daughter, Miss Elaine Tieman, both of Lake Charles; a brother, Harry Tieman of New York; a sister, Mrs. Elmer LeRoy, both of New York; and one grand child.
Funeral services, under direction of Hixson funeral home, are incomplete.
