ISP Investigating French Lick Man's Death

Last updated on Thursday, December 29, 2016

(FRENCH LICK) - Indiana State Police detectives are investigating a man’s death in Orange County, and are asking for the public’s assistance.

On Tuesday, a concerned family member called French Lick Police to check on the well being of 66-year-old James A. Bryson, of French Lick.

His family had not heard from him for two days.

French Lick officers went to the residence at 11387 West County Road 50 South, and found that all doors and windows were locked, with no signs of forced entry. After numerous attempts to make contact with anyone inside, French Lick police forced their way into the home, finding Bryson dead inside.

State Police investigators were asked to assist with the investigation just after 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Detectives currently suspect foul play caused Bryson's death.

An autopsy was conducted Wednesday morning, but cause of death has not yet been determined by the coroner's office.

Detectives are asking that anyone with information about Bryson's whereabouts from Christmas Eve until Wednesday afternoon, or any other pertinent information, contact the Jasper Post of the Indiana State Police by calling 812-482-1441.
