WAKULLA COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL)--A Sopchoppy man dies after a possible fall.

Wakulla County deputies say George Michael Winn was found dead when they got to the scene Monday afternoon shortly after 4:30, along with Wakulla EMS to administer aid.

Deputies say a ladder and a chain saw were also discovered at the scene.

A neighbor told investigators he observed Winn trimming a tree earlier in the day.

They say it appears Winn possibly fell off a ladder, suffering trauma to his head.

An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday.
