Man Assaulted At Small Douglas County Bar Dies One Week Later


Steven "Beaver" Hlinsky, 46, a longtime volunteer firefighter in Forada, died Sunday afternoon at his home, according to the Douglas County sheriff's office, which received a 911 call from the Hlinsky residence.

"His are going to be hard shoes to fill", said Forada Fire Department Chief Bob Steidl. He was taken to Douglas County Hospital and later airlifted to St. Cloud Hospital.

Forada is just south of Alexandria in western Minnesota. He was released from the hospital last Friday.

Although there is not yet enough evidence to definitively tie Hlinsky's death to the bar assault, investigators are questioning everyone who was known to be at the Muddy Boot that night to determine what occurred. When authorities arrived, they found Hlinsky unresponsive and not breathing. Hlinsky was declared dead on the scene.

WEN Sees Unusually Large Options Volume (JELD)
Dillard's, Inc. (DDS ) stock recent traded volume stands with 413914 shares as compared with its average volume of 607.99K shares. If picking stock was easy, everyone would be rich right? On the other end, a stock with a score from 0-2 would be viewed as weak.


Anyone with any information regarding the reported assault is asked to contact the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies say they're interviewing individuals who were at the bar at the time Hlinsky was assaulted.

Hlinsky's death remains under investigation.
