On Wednesday May 20, 2020 approximately 5:50 pm the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a person unresponsive outside of a residence on Brywood Ln in Campbellton.

Upon arrival Roy Lee Robinson, age 82, was found underneath a riding lawnmower deceased. While working underneath the mower, the mower fell on Robinson ‘s chest, crushing and restricting his breathing.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office would like offer our sympathy to Roy Lee Robinson’s family.
