SPERRY, Iowa (AP) - Southeast Iowa authorities are investigating the death of a 69-year-old man who was found unresponsive in a pond.

The Des Moines County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were dispatched Monday night to a residence on 180th Street in Sperry. Sheriff Mike Johnstone told The Hawk Eye (https://bit.ly/1tz3VTB ) that the man was taken to Great River Medical Center in West Burlington, where he was pronounced dead.

The sheriff’s office identified him Tuesday as Richard Duane Dowell, of Burlington.

Johnstone says there is no indication that a crime was involved in the man’s death and that, so far, it appears to be a drowning. Autopsy results are pending.
