    A former chief public defender known for taking on difficult cases has died while hiking in the Adirondacks.

    The New Haven Register reports that 67-year-old Thomas Ullmann died Friday and another hiker found him on a trail near Indian Lake, New York on Saturday.

    His body was found on the OK Slip Falls Trail, located about 74 miles southwest of Lake Placid.

    Ullmann was a well-known public defender who retired from his job last August following a 32-year career with the New Haven Public Defender's office.

    New York State Police have not released the cause of Ullmann's death.
