Jerry N. Barnard, 69, of Porum died yesterday afternoon a mile southwest of Porum after he went to clean out tinhorns in a small creek, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Barnard’s wife told police he left his house around 4 p.m. to clean the tinhorns out. Twenty minutes later, she walked the 60 yards to the creek and found him face-down, the patrol reported. His wife rolled him over onto his back, but was unable to get him out of the creek.

Porum Police and Muskogee County EMS arrived on the scene, but were unable to revive him.

Cause of death is being investigated by the Oklahoma Medical Examiner’s office.
