Body found in Vance field

Posted September 1, 2011

— A man cutting grass Thursday morning found a man's body in a Vance County field, authorities said.

The field is off Old County Home Road, west of Vance Academy Road, which is a couple miles southwest of Henderson.

Vance County Sheriff Peter White said the body appears to have been in the field for a while. He said it's too early to determine whether foul play was involved in the unidentified man's death.

    When I rode by the site yesterday afternoon, there was a sheet covering the body. It looked to have been maybe 50 yards from the road. There is a path that leads to a pond in the same field, but the body was no where near the path nor the pond. I drive by the field several times a day and I have NEVER seen anyone just randomly walking through the field. Seems to me that the body was placed there. Thats just my opinion.

    Who said he was tossed. He could have been walking and passed out.

    Awww, sad to be tossed into a field like garbage.

    Praying for anyone who loved this fellow.
