When a worker at INTAT Precision, Inc., 2148 North SR 3, did not return home from work Saturday a family member became worried and contacted the Rushville Police and Rush County Sheriff’s Department seeking information on the possibility of a traffic accident that may have delayed his arrival at his Fayette County residence.
What initially was filed as a missing person report took a tragic turn a short time later after Rushville Police officer Brent Campbell went to the foundry and located the missing man’s car still in the parking lot.
Rushville Chief of Police Craig Tucker, who was summoned to scene, said the missing man’s remains were found a short time later.
“During a check of the facility, officers located a deceased individual that is believed to be the missing person in question. It is determined that this deceased individual died as a result of an industrial accident,” Tucker said.
The chief continued by saying the Rushville Police Department and IOSHA are conducting a joint investigation into the matter and that as of Saturday night the Rush County Coroner’s Office was working to confirm the identity of the deceased.
