On 5-15-2013, at approximately 8:50 PM, the Red Wing Police Department and Red Wing Fire Department responded to a medical assist on the north side of Barn Bluff.  Upon officer arrival, witnesses were performing CPR on a male that appeared to have fallen from the top of Barn Bluff.  The male victim was pronounced dead at the scene and transported to Mayo in Rochester.  Upon further investigation, witnesses stated that the man was seen jogging on the top of Barn Bluff approximately 20 minutes earlier and had asked for directions off the bluff.  Witnesses were leaving the bluff on the north side trail when they came across the unresponsive male lying on the path at the bottom of a 200 foot rock wall.  The name of the victim was identified as David Locuson, 54, of Fenton, Missouri.  It is believed that Mr. Locuson was in the Red Wing area on a business trip.   The Red Wing Police Department would like to thank the citizens that assisted with this call.  The Red Wing Fire Department and Mahn Family Funeral Home also assisted.
