Authorities investigating death of veteran

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Authorities are investigating the death of a 48-year-old Mercer County veteran whose body was discovered in his home not long after he was dropped off by a taxi.

According to WKYT-TV (http://bit.ly/1kgGnRV), James Price had health issues, but investigators are suspicious about his death.

Deputies say he was alive when he left a local hospital on Friday, but he was found dead not long after he was dropped off at home by a taxi.

A neighbor told authorities that Price seemed to fall out of the taxi. He said the cab driver dragged him into the house then left. A deputy stopped by to check on Price and discovered he was dead.

Officials say the taxi driver is cooperating in the investigation. He said Price was still alive when he dropped him off.
