Medical Examiner releases name of victim in Springfield death investigation

UPDATE (WKOW) -- The Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office is releasing the name of a Springfield man found dead on the 5400 block of Kalesey Ct. Monday, around 9:30 pm. 

Police say 62-year-old James Prem was found in an unventilated room near a piece of gas powered machinery. Attempts to revive him failed and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The preliminary report suggests Prem died from accidental carbon monoxide poisoning, however additional testing is needed to confirm this which the ME suggests will not be available for 3 to 4 months.

Dane County Sheriff's Office says Prem's death will remain under investigation until test results can confirm cause of death.
