Kansas man found dead in water well; cause unclear


ARKANSAS CITY, Kansas (AP) – The owner of an electric company was found dead in a water well near Arkansas City.

The Arkansas City Traveler reports (http://bit.ly/260fm9Q ) 46-year-old Jim Graham’s body was found in the well south of Arkansas City early Wednesday. He has been reporting missing Tuesday after he didn’t return home from work.

Cowley County Undersheriff Jeff Moore says the man has been working on an electrical system on pumps for a well belonging to Cowley County Rural District #1.

Moore says it’s unclear if he died from health issues or was electrocuted. Foul play is not suspected. An autopsy will be performed.

Moore says the electrical systems on the well were operational and the pump was functional when it was turned back on.
