A Kemper County resident has died in an apparent accident near his home at the Kemper-Lauderdale County line.
Sheriff Sam Tisdale said Robert W. Wright, 52, was found Tuesday about 5:30 p.m. by a friend, but had likely been dead since Sunday.
Tisdale said it appeared Wright had slipped off a moving tractor that then rolled over him. Wright lived alone.
The sheriff said no autopsy will be conducted since the death has been ruled accidental by the coroner.
