Ok I know I have not posted here in a while but I need help settling a debate.
Not to disrespect the deceased but the question is "how did Lance Pope pass away?"

It was perhaps multiple causes catching up on him.

His mother said he had from child hood had immune system problems. Then later in life he was hospitalized with kidney failure because of installing urethane in the haunt. Then there is the Lion mauled his leg. The season before he died, he fell down a ladder and a flight of stairs and broke the same leg.

Add to this these slow healing conditions and working hard every day in the hot Texas sun 105 degrees outside, 140 degrees inside the haunts, helpers on site agree that he worked himself to death. Ultimately it was heart failure that was never explained completely by doctors, a complication of all of the above conditions and ailments.

A few others in Haunt history have died and injured themselves due to over working to put together massive offerings and sometimes I haven't felt too good myself and keep this working themselves to death thing in mind.
