Sheriff's Office investigates Death

On 05/31/2011 at approximately 1743 hours units from the Hodgeman County Sheriff’s Office, Hodgeman County EMS, and Jetmore Fire were dispatched to 704 Atkin for a possible hanging.

On arrival officers found that a resident, Joshua D. Reed, 34, had been found hanging in the residence by a friend and that he was deceased.  Sheriff Ron Ridley advised that there were no apparent signs of foul play and that the initial investigation indicates that Reed took his own life. Sheriff Ridley advised that the investigation is continuing and that no final determination of the cause of death will be made until the results of a scheduled autopsy are made available to the Sheriff’s Office.
