Madsen, Raymond
August 3, 2011

Raymond Madsen retired from Western Electric on 2-8-1985.  He was 88 at the time of his death.

An autopsy did not determine the cause of death of an 88-year-old man who had been dead for several months before being found inside his home late last week.
Deputy Chief Jeff Elliott said the cause of death for Raymond Madsen remains unknown.

Elliott said the case is still under investigation and that investigators are working with the Dodge County Attorney's Office to determine a course of action.
