Kenneth man found dead in storm

LUVERNE -- A 64-year-old Kenneth man who apparently slid into the ditch due to icy road conditions was found frozen to death outside his vehicle shortly before noon on Tuesday.

The Rock County Sheriff's Office in Luverne reported that Arnold Halverson appeared to have attempted to walk to an unknown destination after his vehicle went in the ditch on Rock County 3, one-half mile south of Kenneth. A passerby notified the sheriff's office at 11:48 a.m. Tuesday, and they responded with the Kenneth First Responders and Rock County Ambulance. Halverson was pronounced dead at the scene.

A press release issued by the sheriff's office states that no foul play was involved, and the time of the incident is unknown.
