A 66-year-old Bullitt County man was found dead on Saturday, and much of his body had been devoured by dogs.
Guy Edward Snellen Sr. of Lebanon Junction was found in his home on South Preston Highway. His body had been mangled and torn apart by the animals, according to a Bullitt County Sheriff's Department report.
An autopsy performed by the state medical examiner's office found that Snellen likely died of natural causes, Bullitt County Coroner Thomas Kappel said yesterday. Snellen had a history of strokes, which may have contributed to his death, Kappel said.
It is uncertain when Snellen died, though a sales receipt indicated he had been to a grocery store on Thursday morning. Kappel said he would list the date of death as Thursday.
Guy Snellen had six daughters, two sons and two stepchildren. Yesterday Jerry Snellen, a brother who lives in Poland, Ohio, recalled his brother's knack for construction and plumbing. He was a master plumber, his brother said.
"He certainly leaned toward mathematics in high school," Jerry Snellen said. "He was very bright in anything he touched in the field of construction. And he loved the outdoors."
He was in the Army Reserve in the late 1950s and early '60s. Jerry Snellen said his brother was never called to active duty.
Don Snellen, a cousin of Guy Snellen who still lives in Bullitt County, fondly recalled growing up with him as they worked on a farm near Bernheim Forest. Guy Snellen graduated from Lebanon Junction High School in the mid-1950s, Jerry Snellen said.
