Elderly man found dead

April 30, 2006

Webster Co. - The search for an elderly South Georgia man comes to a tragic end.

Around seven Sunday evening, the body of 71-year old Don Pittman was found in a pond in Webster County. Investigators say someone spotted his truck near the pond and contacted police. Pittman's body was found soon after.

He was last seen leaving his home on 2nd Avenue in Dawson around noon Saturday. Pittman had severe heart problems, and left his medication at home.

Terrell County Sheriff John Bowens thinks Pittman may have had a heart attack and fallen into the pond, but an investigation is underway. Foul play is not suspected.
