LaGrange County man killed after storm knocks tree onto his home


The death of a LaGrange County man is being blamed on Tuesday morning's severe storms.

According to our reporting partners at WPTA in Fort Wayne, the LaGrange County Coroner confirmed 64-year-old Larry Davisson was killed when a tree fell on his house during Tuesday morning's storm.

WPTA reported from the scene of the house at Big Long Lake near Angola that the damage from the tree trapped Davisson's wife in the back of the home. Neighbors said the couple had lived in the area for more than 20 years.

Witnesses told WPTA that crews needed a crane to retrieve Davisson's body from the damaged house.

FOX28 will provide more information on this story as it becomes available.
