Jones never arrived at the tree, so the witness went back to look for the him. The witness found the victim on the ground pinned underneath his four wheeler. The witness summoned help from a nearby friend, in which they managed to remove the four wheeler off of Mr. Jones.

The inquest was conducted by Justice of the Peace, Precinct 5, Judge Joe Sorrells, who has ordered an autopsy.
