Marion County Coroner’s Office Investigating Death of 32-Year-Old Salem Man

SALEM — The Marion County Coroner’s Office is currently investigating the accidental electrocution death of a 32-year-old Salem man.

According to Coroner Troy Cannon Alex Carroll, of Cross Road, was apparently experimenting with an electrical device in his garage when he came in contact with the energized portion of the device, allowing high-amperage current to flow through his body.

Cannon says Carroll was killed instantly. No foul play is suspected, and no autopsy is planned.

The Rogers/Atkins Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
