Body Found Near Cookville Community

     A bizarre accident apparently has claimed the life of an east Texas man. Titus County sheriffs deputies say late yesterday evening they were called to a pasture area at the intersection of U.S. Highway 67 and county road 3150 for a body found at the location. The area is near the Cookville community. The body had been located on a tractor in the pasture. A witness says he found the tractor against a downed tree.  Investigators believe 63 year old Jimmy Briscoe, was mowing the pasture for the property owner and was attempting to move a downed tree with the tractor's front end bucket when the end of the tree slipped over the bucket and struck him on the head. Briscoe was pronounced dead at the scene.
