Payne man died of exposure to DEET, ethanol

Information from the autopsy from a death last August in Payne has been released, and though the medical examiner’s office says the man died by exposure to ethanol and the insect repellent DEET. That man, 50-year-old Cary Parsons, had a blood alcohol level of .19, more than twice as high as the legal limit for driving. The Paulding County Prosecutor’s Office says what they don’t know is the manner of death, because they don’t know where the DEET came from. The man charged in Parsons death, Andrew Martin, is charged with involuntary manslaughter and other charges. His pretrial hearing is set for Wednesday afternoon.
