Winona Man Drowns In Sabine River

  An autopsy is being performed on the East Texas man who died while trying to wade across the Sabine River. Game wardens say Dennis Wayne Hood, 49, drowned Saturday night near the Smith County, Upshur County line. Officials say Hood was walking on or beside an underground pipeline, but are not sure exactly what took place for him to fall in the water. Game wardens say Hood's son was with him when it happened.
