Authorities seek answers in ATV death at Dunham

Foul play is not suspected in the death of a man whose body was found on a strip mine on Dunham Hill.

Police say, Christopher Meade, whose age and address were not available, was found dead late Monday evening by a man riding an all-terrain vehicle on the old strip mine. The rider contacted his father, who contacted Jenkins Police.

Patrolman Jim Stephens said Meade’s four-wheeler was on its side and his body was over a hill nearby. He said it was not clear whether he was killed when the vehicle turned over, or if he suffered a heart attack or some other illness. The body was sent to Frankfort for autopsy, but no foul play is suspected.

No additional information was available at press time.
