Body found in Hartselle storm drain identified as Danville man

The body of a Danville man who had been missing for several days was found in a storm drain at 208 South Sparkman St. behind the Hartselle Farmer’s Market yesterday.

Morgan County Coroner Jeff Chunn said the body was identified as a Danville man, James Bates, 23. Bates’ body was found by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management upon inspection of the storm drain.
Chunn said no autopsy will be performed as the death will be ruled accidental and no foul play is suspected.

Police Chief Ron Puckett said there had been no official missing persons report filed on Bates.

Peck Funeral Home is accepting donations to aid the family in funeral expenses.
