A woman arriving at a home located at 2719 Hwy. 36 East called 911 after finding a 19-year-old male who was cold to the touch and unresponsive at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. Emergency personnel were dispatched. The address is east of the highway's intersection with Jones Road.
Multiple social media postings have identified the victim as a 20-year-old former baseball player at LCCHS.
Coroner Jim Smith has now confirmed the dead teen is Ryan Lovick and reports his birthdate would make him 19 as originally reported.
