A Buffalo man was found dead Tuesday, March 3, at his home near Mount Tabor Baptist Church.
James E. Bennett, 76, had gone to a pond on his property earlier that day to clean out a drain. When he did not return to the house, family members looked for him.
Bennett was found about 7 p.m. in the pond, which was several hundred yards from the house, according to LaRue County Deputy Coroner Wesley Warren.
Warren said a preliminary autopsy was inconclusive. Results of a full autopsy will be available in four-to-six weeks.
