WHITEHALL, Wis. (WEAU) - A sheriff's department is investigating the death of an Eau Claire man.

On Thursday, the Trempealeau County Sheriff's Office identified the victim as Stephen Bickell II, 35, of Eau Claire. Crews responded to the Arcadia Town Hall on State Highway 95 on Tuesday evening. Investigators say he was apparently changing a tire to an end loader. A release from the sheriff's office did not specify what happened after that, saying that's when "the incident occurred."

A coroner pronounced Bickell dead. Deputies are investigating. They say there's no indication of foul play, mechanical failure, or trauma.
