POLICE: Death of Colusa man is suspicious
Colusa police report the death of a 66-year-old Colusa man this morning is suspicious, but has not officially been classified as a homicide.
Mike Servenack died at Colusa Regional Medical Center.
He had been taken to the hospital around mid-day Friday from his Caleb Court home with an injury to the back of his head, interim police Chief Ross Stark said.
“The doctor called us because the type of fracture to the back of his head was suspicious,” Stark said, “but it is not a blunt trauma injury, like somone had him with a tire iron.”
Servenack was in declining health, and had a history of falls.
The Colusa County Coroner’s Office is involved with the ongoing investigation. A autopsy will be performed, Stark said.
Servenack was a longtime Colusa resident, who worked many years at Pirellie Cable and more recently at the hospital, but was retired.
He was also an avid bowler who competed in a number of pro-level events, particularly in the senior circuit.
