HILLSVILLE — Police now characterize the death of a 54-year-old Woodlawn man as the result of a farm accident, according to Sheriff J.B. Gardner.
A search began for Claude Gardner (no relation to the sheriff) after family members reported him missing June 5. The search was called off after midnight due to bad weather to resume the next morning.
But family members found Gardner’s body in a creek on his farm, about a quarter-mile from his home on Woodlawn Road at about 7 a.m. on June 6, before the searchers returned.
