Border Patrol agent Scott Schoen, 30, died of natural causes, Ottawa County coroner Daniel Cadigan said.

A cleaning crew found Schoen’s body at about 7:40 a.m. Sunday lying face-up next to a pool of blood, according to Ottawa County deputies.

“The pool of blood was not unusual for someone who died of cardiac arrest or something similar,” Cadigan said.

A Border Patrol agent in the building attempted to resuscitate Schoen for several minutes, as did paramedics who soon arrived from North Central EMS, deputies said. He was quickly taken to Magruder Hospital in Port Clinton, where he was pronounced dead. “There are no suspicions of foul play” Cadigan said.

A Border Patrol watch commander said Schoen recently told his wife he was having chest pains while working out, deputies said. Officials from the U.S. Border Patrol did not return messages seeking comment.
