Westport Bartender Died of Pneumonia

Missing Westport bartender David Bargmann, identified by a cyber sleuth almost 10 months after he died as a “John Doe” in Florida, succumbed to bacterial pneumonia, a family source said today.

The 44-year-old Fairfield man was identified only after a 52-year-old disabled woman in Georgia, who searches Web sites of missing persons and unidentified bodies in hopes of finding matches, cracked the case, the Connecticut Post reported today.

Bargmann, who worked at Westport’s V Restaurant & Wine Bar on Post Road East, disappeared without a trace last March 24, leaving behind his wallet and identification.

A family member told WestportNow today they had no idea how he ended up in the Key West, Fla., area but had been told by authorities there that he died from bacterial pneumonia.

“How he came to be in Key West is the mystery, unless he became delusional and just disappeared,” said the relative. (See WestportNow Jan. 29, 2004).

Bargmann is survived by his son, Blake, daughter, Taylor, his former wife, Linda, his mother, Inez, and two brothers and a sister.
