What happened?

Investigate … Close to HomeWhen Ambrose Garrett's wife still couldn't reach him hours after the Whitehall Homeowners Association meeting had ended, she asked family friend Julie Arbuckle for help.

Julie went to the Whitehall Community Center where the meeting had been held and found Ambrose, the HOA's president, unresponsive in the meeting room.

Earlier that evening, Garrett had presided over a meeting of the Whitehall Homeowners Association, which he was president of, at the community center.

She called 911, and Ambrose was pronounced dead a short time later. He had no apparent injuries, and there were no signs of a disturbance in the meeting room.
