A Franklin homeowner discovers a dead man floating in her pool. Simpson County Coroner Gary Crafton said a resident on East Cedar Street in Franklin, looked out her window at 7:20 a.m. this morning and saw a fully clothed man’s body floating in her pool.

After authorities responded to her 911 call, 51-year-old Oscar Moore was pronounced dead at the scene.

He had been hired by the homeowner to do some yard work today, Thursday, April 5, 2007.

Crafton said this appears to be a case of accidental drowning, but an autopsy in Louisville Friday morning will determine Moore’s exact cause of death.
