Jim Test, in his late 70s, had not been seen or heard from by family members for several days. Test was also enrolled on Johnson County’s Senior Call-in List, but had not reported in for a few days.
Sheriff deputies combed the property throughout the day in search of Test when they noticed the disturbed well cover and found his body.
Authorities do not suspect any foul play. They are treating it as an accidental death.
Johnson County Coroner David Rockwell said an autopsy will be done.
Emergency recovery personnel from five area fire departments assisted in the recovery of Test’s body.
Additional details will be passed on as they become available.
