Jasper County resident dies of E. coli

John Hacker of the Carthage Press reports that a Jasper County resident died earlier this week from E. coli food contamination and the Jasper County Health Department is investigating other possible cases that might be related to a single family gathering over Thanksgiving weekend.

Jasper County Health Department Director Tony Moehr said the victim died this week of an extreme case of E. coli and his department is trying to determine what the people who got sick ate at this gathering.

Moehr said his office has collected the leftover food that remains from that family event. He said a total of 11 people out of 24 people who attended the event have reported some symptoms, including the one person who died.
