Farmer Dies In Accident With Hay Baler

A man is dead after an accident on a farm in Montgomery County.

Police say early Tuesday morning they found the body of 68-year-old Linville Davis near the Valhalla subdivision in Mt. Sterling. The coroner says he died from injuries from a roll hay baler.

As you may recall, Davis made news back in April when police reported finding horses dead and starving on his Clark County farm.

He was due to stand trial on animal cruelty charges next week.

    I agree. The author of this article should NEVER have mentioned that. You know, when I look across the baseball field at his 2 grandsons I think how terrible they must feel about losing their grandfather. I do NOT think of the other that was mentioned. "Innocent until proven guilty." Author, you should "do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Our prayers are with the members of this family, who are all so wonderful to the kids and people of the community.

    i agree with most everyone that has left a comment.. that should not have been brought up.. that was pretty low of who ever wrote that artical..and to the one that yells suicide.. thats low too.. do you think someone is going to go work bailing hay in the hott sun and kill their self with a hay bailer.. that was jus something stupid to say..but my thoughts and prayers are with the family.. and i would feel pretty low life to leave comments like that when someone just lost a loved one..

    "Was this the same man that had someone else caring for the animals while he was sick? So sad....guess he will not go to court huh? Poor guy had to die with that over his head. Ironic that he was baling hay." My thoughts exactly - word for word.

    It's not uncommon for a person's name to be mentioned in recent news articles. It helps to clarify for readers who may ask "I wonder if that's the same...I read about". No different than noting "the two persons are not related". Get over it and just hope he didn't suffer as much as his horses did.

    Is there a reason that his horses were brought up in this article?? Is there suspected foul play involved? If not, the situation concerning his horses should not have been mentioned. My prayers go out to his family.

    My prayers and thoughts are with the family!!! I can't believe someone could be so low and actually post the last 3 lines of this story. A family has lost a loved one. Some of you people make me sick!! What is the world coming to. May God bless this family and be with them while going through this terrible time.

    Why did you feel it necessary to rehash old news at a time of loss for this family? Couldn't that have been left unsaid for the sake of loved ones grieving?
