Authorities investigating Como man's death


Como – A tragic accident in Hopkins County has led to the death of an elderly Como man.

Authorities say 67-year-old Domingo Perez was burning trees at his home on FM 69 when one fell and he was trapped underneath. As no one was around at the time to assist him, Perez is believed to have been caught in the fire.

No foul play is suspected, but deputies are investigating.
