Cause of Death Remains Mystery

By news admin

Police in central Kentucky say they'll probably never know what caused a fiery crash that killed a Fayette County prosecutor in May.
Versailles Police Lt. Daniel Clark says the department closed the investigation into first assistant county attorney Brian Mattone's death "a couple of weeks ago" after toxicology tests showed he wasn't using drugs or alcohol before the wreck.
Mattone drove his Toyota 4Runner into a tree and through a plank fence where it burst into flames just after 10 p.m. May 2.
Woodford County Coroner Ronald Clark says that records were inconclusive as to whether Mattone was using his cellphone at the time of the wreck.
Mattone had been second in command at Fayette County Attorney Larry Roberts' office since in 2006.
