Investigation Continues Into Death At FVCC

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

Flathead county sheriff, Chuck Curry, says the student death at Flathead Valley Community College was not due to a lack of safety measures.

Sixty-year-old Peter Mahlum of Bigfork fell to his death from scaffolding more than two weeks ago off Hutton Ranch Road while working on a class project.

The course, Building Trades Field Experience, has not met since the accident.

Although Curry says the physical investigation has wrapped up, authorities are still waiting on a toxicology report from Missoula, which could take several months.

"We investigate every potential avenue and one of those is toxicology, so nothing out of the ordinary," said Sheriff Curry, "It's done routinely in any case like this."

FVCC could not give a comment since this is still an ongoing investigation.
