Police Awaiting Autopsy Results In Entertainer’s Untimely Death

Police are investigating the untimely death of an entertainer who was found dead at a Hawleyville bar the morning after he had given a performance at the establishment with a musical group.

Police said this week that Isaac C. Crooms, Jr, 55, of Southington was found dead about 9:27 am October 13, in an upstairs men’s room at Hot Shots II at 130 Mt Pleasant Road (Route 6) in Hawleyville.

“He apparently died of natural causes,” police said in a statement.

As part of their investigation into his death, police witnessed an autopsy which was performed on Mr Crooms’s remains at the chief state’s medical examiner’s facilities in Farmington.

The results of that autopsy are pending, based on results of toxicological tests to be performed, a spokeswoman for the medical examiner said. Those results should be disclosed by mid-December.

Police said their investigation into Mr Crooms’ death remains open, pending the results of the autopsy.

According to his obituary, Mr Crooms was a lead singer for many years for The Great Train Robbery, Full Blast, and most recently TL & The All-Stars.
