Fisherman found deceased near Haubstadt

Conservation officers say a body was found in a pond in Gibson County last night.

83-eyar-old Eugene Schneider of Fort Branch was pulled from a private pond near Haubstadt just before 6-pm local time.  He later pronounced dead at an Evansville Hospital.

Officers say the man had left his home to fish between 2 and 3-pm and did not return.  His son began a search and found him in the pond.

No foul play is suspected and the investigation continues.
