Mission death called natural

November 1, 2007

Albany -- A man living at the Albany Rescue Mission was found dead, and while police were at first suspicious, they now say his death was natural.

Forty-four-year-old Eric Honea was found dead on a mattress on the floor in one of the back rooms of the Albany Rescue Mission dormitory. Honea had lived at the Mission on and off for more than three years.

"He came back home yesterday morning very sick," Daniel Dames, Albany Rescue Mission Program Director. "We gave him another chance to get his life back turned around together through the Mission. But this time he couldn't make it, through his illness. He had a seizure again. We called the ambulance, but he was DOA.

Honea had been hospitalized for three days last week because of seizures, and Mission staff say he suffered another last night. That was why they put him on a mattress on the floor.
