Deputies were dispatched after a call from acquaintances indicating they had not heard from the man for some time. They found a badly decomposed body in the seat on a backhoe. Animals had gotten to the upper torso of the body. A .22 caliber rifle was found on the backhoe with a spent shell in the chamber. The body was sent to the crime lab, according to coroner Jim Smith.
