MAYFIELD, Daniel Ray
Star City man found dead STAR CITY,WEST VIRGINIA -- A Star City glassworker was found dead at his Normandy Street home at 3:45 p.m. yesterday by a member of his family. According to acting coroner William Bowers, the body of 25-year-old Daniel Ray Mayfield was taken to University Hospital for further examination to determine the cause of death. Bowers said that if the cause of death can't be determined by the examination, then an autopsy would have to be ordered. The cause of death could not be determined at the scene, he said. Bowers said he was called to act as coroner when neither of the two county coroners could be reached. That was part of the agreement when he gave up the post of coroner, Bowers said.
