WE Fest death blamed on heart condition

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. – A 24-year-old Fargo man who died at WE Fest had a serious heart and pulmonary condition, initial findings from an autopsy report show.

The preliminary provisional autopsy report found the medical problems were the cause of death for Carl Marvin Cymbaluk, according to Becker County Sheriff Tim Gordon.

Investigators have ruled out foul play, but they are still waiting for some reports and consider it an open investigation, Gordon said in a news release.

Cymbaluk, originally of Fosston, Minn., was found dead shortly before 7 a.m. Aug. 6, several hours before musical acts first hit the main stage at the festival, held near Detroit Lakes.
