Obituary Condolences

A 53-year-old Highland man was found dead in a farm pond today after the tractor he was riding apparently tipped and rolled into the water.

Timothy L. Cochran was found dead shortly before noon in a pond on property owned by his brother, Perry Cochran.

Madison County Coroner Steve Nonn said Timothy Cochran was mowing on the property with a John Deere 750 farm tractor.

“While traveling across the dam of the pond, the wheels of the tractor traveled too far over the edge of the earthen berm, causing the tractor to tip sideways and roll into the water,” Nonn said.

Bystanders removed Timothy Cochran’s body from the water.
