Name released on Smithville man found dead

Posted: Updated:

Police received a call around 4pm Friday about a man found dead outside his house and are investigating the case because there are some implications of foul play.

"It could be self inflicted, were just taking all of the precautionary arrangements", says Lee County Sheriff Reggie Rachals.

His family believes that the victim will never hurt himself on purpose and they think James Edward Hughes, 50, was trying to protect himself from a wild hog.
