Monroe County's chief prosecutor has died.  Dan Cary passed away yesterday at his home in Sparta. 

The death was discovered after Cary had not showed up for a court appearance.  Authorities are investigating, but foul play is not suspected.  Cary was first elected the Monroe County district attorney in 2003, after serving five years as an assistant D-A.  He was honored as the state's District Attorney-of-the-Year in 2012.  Cary specialized in prosecuting some of the county's most severe criminal cases -- including homicide, sexual assault, drug, and child abuse matters.
