On Saturday at 9:20 p.m., the Lyon County Sheriff's Office responded to a call about an unresponsive male on Kentucky Lake Drive in the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area.

When Deputy Seth P'Pool arrived on-scene, he reportedly found a female actively giving CPR to Gary L. Beach, 70, of Benton, who was unresponsive. It was determined shortly after the deputy's arrival that Beach was deceased.

The circumstances surrounding Beach's death have not yet been determined, and an autopsy was scheduled for Monday at the Western Kentucky Regional Medical Examiner's Office in Madisonville.

If anyone has any information concerning this incident, they are asked to contact the Lyon County Sheriff's Office at (270) 388-2311 during business hours, or (270) 388-0911 after hours.
