Alton Police were called to a home in the 1100 block of Willard on Thursday after a school bus driver reported a potential problem with the parent of a child. Authorities say the bus driver called 911 after a child got on a bus crying and said his father was having trouble breathing. A second bus arrived to take the children to school while police spoke to the driver. 30 year old Eric Warmack was found dead inside the home a short time later. The Madison County Coroner's Office has conducted an autopsy to determine the cause of death, but there were reportedly no signs of trauma.
