An autopsy is scheduled today on the body of a Morganfield man who was killed in Hopkins County Tuesday afternoon.

Kentucky State Police Post 2 troopers responded to a complaint around 1:20 Tuesday afternoon of a subject pinned beneath a mobile home on Tirey Lane in Mortons Gap. KSP says the subject, identified as 63 year James Roberts, was transported by ambulance to Baptist Health in Madisonville where he died from his injuries.

Authorities indicate a preliminary investigation revealed that Roberts was partially underneath the mobile home setting a pier of blocks to stabilize the residence when it fell on him.

According to KSP, an autopsy is being conducted at the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Madisonville.
