The Jackson County Sheriff is investigating an apparent farm fatality. At about 5:30 p.m. Monday, authorities were called to a farm just south of Bellvue. A co-worker was checking on another person who had failed to show up for work.
He discovered the body of 61-year-old Wayne Kieffer of rural Bellvue. A preliminary investigation determined that Kieffer sustained fatal injuries when the tractor and manure spreader he was operating rolled down a small hill and struck him.
