Branson Police Thwarted From Burying Pool Death Story

BRANSON, Mo. (AP) -- Branson police say they are investigating the death of a 48-year-old man in a hotel swimming pool.

Branson Police Chief Caroll McCullough says no evidence of foul play was found after James Charles Ross Jr. of Branson was found dead Monday.

Ross was found in the swimming pool of the Leisure Country Inn in Branson. McCullough says Ross had lived at the hotel for a few weeks and had lived in the Branson area a couple of years.

The incident was originally reported to the Branson Mayor Media Group and is not getting national play.
