PLANT CITY, Fla. - The body of an 80-year-old man was discovered Saturday morning in a pond adjacent to the RV park where he lived.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, a resident at the Tampa East RV Resort Park found Joseph Edgar Ross after he apparently drowned.
Around midnight, deputies were called out by a resident who told them they heard someone possibly yelling for help around 9:30 p.m. - and that about five minutes later it stopped.
Deputies initially conducted a search of the area, but nothing turned up.
Investigators say he may have wandered into the pond accidentally.
