INDIANAPOLIS (Aug. 14, 2015) – The death of a Carmel man who died after a bar fight has been ruled a homicide.
That’s the determination from the Marion County Coroner’s Office.
Michael Lanter died from a brain aneurysm after getting into a fight with another man at the Chatterbox Jazz Club in May. During the incident, he fell and hit his head.
The coroner ruled his death was caused by “subarachnoid hematoma due to a ruptured brain aneurysm following blunt force trauma to the head.”
Prosecutors have not yet said if they’ll file charges in the case.
In a statement, Lanter’s parents said they hope the justice system “will address the issue in an appropriate manner.”
