JASONVILLE – The body of a man pulled from Midland Lake in Jasonville has been identified.
The body has been identified as that of 56-year-old William P. Hendrix, of Linton. The exact cause of death is pending autopsy results.
Indiana Conservation Officers were called to the lake at 10:25 a.m. on Sunday, July 18th after Greene County Dispatch received a 911 call of a person struggling in the water. Once on scene, a Jasonville police officer and a Clay City firefighter saw a man unresponsive in the water, swam to him, and brought him back to shore.
Greene County EMS transported Hendrix to the Greene County General Hospital, from where he was immediately flown to Eskenazi Hospital in Indianapolis, where he was later pronounced dead.
Indiana Conservation Officers were assisted by Jasonville Police Department, Linton Police Department, Greene County Sheriff’s Department, Wright Township Fire Department, Greene County Emergency Medical Services, and the Linton Fire Department.
