VIDEO: Missing Va. Deputy Found Dead

The Greensville County (Va.) Sheriff’s Deputy whose disappearance Friday morning sparked a massive search was found deceased Saturday, WTVR TV reports.

“Early this morning, Percy Lee House III, the Greensville County Sheriff’s Deputy missing since Friday morning, was found deceased in his vehicle located in a creek off of Massie Branch Road in Greensville County,” the Virginia Sheriffs’ Association wrote in a Saturday morning email. “While the Virginia State Police is in the midst of conducting a full investigation, the accident is reported to be the result of icy road conditions.”

Deputy House, 52, last made contact with the Greensville County Sheriff’s Office about 9:24 a.m. Friday. House was last spotted in the small town of Skippers.

This makes no sense. First they say they spotted his vehicle and are investigating it. Then they say they found him IN his vehicle IN THE CREEK? What???

Kat- I'm not sure, but if you are referring to clicking through and looking at the full WTVR-TV story on this, they are also running a banner headline on that page about the discovery of the vehicle of the missing Reserve Captain near there. The article on that case is also separately referenced on the Police Mag. patrol page- foul play is suspected there.
