IZARD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - The Izard County Sheriff's Department is investigating the death of a man in the Dolph community.

According to a post on the department's Facebook page, the man has been identified as Ricky Brown.

Brown was found dead inside a house on Wayland Arbor Road around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.

His body was sent to the state medical examiner's office to determine the cause of death.
