The Rusk County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a 79-year-old man found in his home Saturday.
The home, in the 11,000 block of FM 2012 south of Kilgore, was cordoned off by officers throughout the afternoon and into the evening.
Rusk County Lt. David Marshall called the work an "ongoing investigation into a death," and said law enforcement personnel were working to determine whether foul play was involved.
The name of the man was not released, and a property search through the Rusk County Appraisal District did not turn up his identity.
Marshall said a Texas Ranger and other personnel were on hand at the property Saturday to aid in the investigation.
The sheriff's office will release additional information as it becomes available, he said about 5:30 p.m.
