LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nye County sheriff's officials are investigating the death of a 25-year-old man at a dairy in rural Amargosa Valley.
The sheriff's office in Pahrump says deputies and firefighters responding to a 911 call found the man dead about 9:15 p.m. Thursday at the Ponderosa Dairy property.
Sheriff's Detective Michael Eisenloffel says the initial call was that the man was badly hurt and might be dead.
