An investigation is underway to determine the cause of death of a Zionsville firefighter and paramedic.
Officials with the Zionsville Fire Department said Cody Richardson, 26, was found unresponsive at a farm in northern Boone County on Monday. Richardson had just completed his shift at Zionsville Fire Station 91 at 7 a.m. and was found deceased later that day.
Richardson joined the fire department as a part-time firefighter and EMT in September 2007. He was hired fulltime the following year. Officials said he later went through paramedic school and became a firefighter and paramedic with the Zionsville Fire Department.
“Cody will truly be missed,” said Fire Chief James VanGorder in a news release. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, family and friends.”
Funeral arrangements are pending.
