Fall kills Irene man
An 84-year-old man was killed Thursday afternoon, Sept. 20, after taking a spill while strolling on his family farm approximately four miles east of Irene.

According to Turner County Sheriff Byron Nogelmeier, Kermit Holm apparently stumbled while taking a walk outdoors on the farm.

"The elderly gentleman fell on a rod, and it went through his neck," the sheriff said.


The man's death, according to Nogelmeier's report, was caused by injuries to his neck.

Holm wasn't transported to a hospital. "It's my understanding that he died at the scene," the sheriff said.

Personnel from the Turner County sheriff's office visited the scene after being called at approximately 5 p.m. Thursday, and determined, after a brief investigation, that no foul play was involved.

Nogelmeier said he assumes Holm was found by a family member following the accident.
