‘Tanning salon in seattle is owned by the family of the former US president’: The latest on the death of the son of the late US president
On Thursday, authorities said a Florida man had died from a heart attack after eating at a seattle-area tanning parlor.
A coroner’s report released Thursday said John Thomas Fink died of a heart condition.
The Florida man, who is identified by authorities only as James Fink, was eating at the tanning studio in a seahorse-colored building on Friday morning when he ate something in his hand, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.
Fink had no known medical conditions, the newspaper reported.
According to the Tallapas Democrat, Fink is the son and heir to the Fink tanning empire.
He was the grandson of former President Jimmy Carter.
Finkle’s family has said he suffered from an illness that could have been triggered by eating a food that contained a pesticide known as methyl bromide.
The Tallahasssee Democrat noted Fink’s grandfather worked at the salon, which was owned by his family.
Finks uncle, John Fink Sr., was arrested on a felony charge of manslaughter and faces a potential prison term of 10 to 20 years in prison.
His uncle also faces felony charges for allegedly threatening to burn down the business, the paper reported.
In December, Finks son, John Thomas, died after eating lunch at the same tanning facility.
The Washington Post reported that Fink has said the incident at the Florida salon was an accident.
