HACKETT (KFSM) — The Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office was called to a farm in Hackett on Monday to investigate a death there.

Capt. Philip Pevehouse, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said deputies were investigating what they initially thought was a tractor accident that left a man dead. Upon further investigation, deputies believe the man had a “medical emergency” on the tractor that led to his death, Pevehouse said.

The incident happened sometime Monday morning (Jan. 14) on private property just down County Road 51 from the Mount Zion Baptist Church near Hackett.

The homeowner, who declined to be named, said the man who died was an employee who was feeding the cows.
