Additional details have surfaced regarding the death of Jim Neidhart today.

TMZ reports that Jim’s wife Elizabeth Neidhart told investigators he was having difficulty sleeping and got out of bed to change the thermostat. As Jim went to touch it, he “turned weirdly as if he were about to dance. He then fell towards the wall and ground.”

Elizabeth then dialed 911 think he was having a seizure because he suffers from seizures and takes medication for it. When officials arrived to the home, they found the Jim on the floor with a 4-inch gash on his face.

Medication was found on-site but none of it appeared to be abused. Jim was pronounced dead a short time later.
