Deuel County authorities say a 13-year old Chappell boy died Sunday after an apparent fall from a grain elevator.
County Attorney Jonathan Stellar says the investigation is continuing into the death of Casey Fox.
Stellars says the Deuel County Sheriff’s Office and Chappell Volunteer ambulance were dispatched to the Frenchman Valley Coop in Chappell just after 7 a.m. and found Fox unconscious and unresponsive. The teen was later declared dead.
Investigators with the sheriff’s office determined that Fox had climbed a grain bin at the Coop and fallen, suffering injuries that claimed his life.
