MOUNTAIN HOME — Authorities in Baxter County are investigating the death of a man whose body was found outside his home.
Sheriff John Montgomery said Sunday that the body of 54-year-old Donald Dean Farrier was found Saturday lying facedown on the ground about a foot from the steps to his residence.
The father of the victim told authorities his son usually comes to his residence and has coffee in the mornings. When his son didn't show up for coffee for a second morning, he went to the residence to check on him, found his body and called 911.
Montgomery says there was no apparent trauma to the body and the victim may have been dead for two days. He says the medical examiner's office will determine the cause and manner of death.
