Casaday resting after heart attack

Friday, October 15, 2021 by Jo Clifton

Ken Casaday, president of the Austin Police Association, told the Austin Monitor Thursday that he had suffered a heart attack on Saturday night. The incident occurred as he was running toward an officer-involved shooting in the Sixth Street area. Casaday, 53, said he now has three stents in his heart and that a recent stress test showed no problem. He added that he is now convinced he needs to take better care of himself, and that he expects to be off-duty for another week. We wish him a speedy recovery.
