Body Found Near Creek


An investigation continues after police find a body near a creek.

Police say they found Homer Hall of Floyd County near his home Tuesday afternoon in the Galveston area.

Police say the body was on the other side of the creek.

They're not sure if foul play is involved or not, but right now they're trying to figure out how the man got outside and why.

Neighbors say Homer Hall liked to sit outside on his porch, but Tuesday afternoon, a neighbor says he didn't see hall on the porch, and after looking around, he saw his body across the street by the creek.

"He was taking his daughter up the road on a 4-wheeler ride and seen it and he turned down the road and come back to make sure," David Akers said

Police say Homer hall was naked and lying face down. Detectives say Hall had no obvious signs of injury, but they're investigating the cause of death.

"At this time foul play has not been ruled out of this incidence. We're still looking into that. Autopsies will be conducted by the state medical examiner's office in Frankfort," Trooper Scott Hopkins said.

Hall's friends say they don't think anyone wanted to hurt him, and they believe something else killed him.

"He had problems with his health and stuff like that," Robert Hune said.

Neighbors say they didn't see him leave his house and don't know why he was on the other side of the creek.

They say they too are waiting to find out what happened to him.

Police say it will take several days to get the autopsy report from frankfort and they're not making any conclusions until then.
