LuVerne, Iowa – An investigation is underway after a woman reported finding her husband unresponsive Monday.


The Kossuth County Sheriff’s Office said the call was received at 5:30 p.m.


Upon arrival, the male was found to be deceased. The body will be transported to the State Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Claerance Huff lives across the street from where it all took place at the intersection of Smart Street and Hanna Avenue.

He said he could hear his neighbor arguing with another person and a little while later his street was covered with law enforcement.

"I was working on the law mower and my neighbor was over there sitting by the house and he was talking quite loud with another guy," he said. "A little while later I guess he came back ... the guy came back."


Iowa DCI has been called in to assist in the investigation.


Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to call the Kossuth County Sheriff’s Office.


Authorities said there is “no reason to believe that there is an ongoing threat to the citizens of this community.”
