Autopsy Results

Autopsy pointed to brain hemorrhage

By Billy Davis

The autopsy of a 48-year-old woman found dead in a family swimming pool has revealed she suffered a brain hemorrhage before her death.

Katherine “Kathy” Elizabeth Brower was discovered Sunday, August 9 at his family’s home, located on New Pats Bluff Road in the Sardis Lake community.

The autopsy results were returned Wednesday, August 12, said coroner Gracie Grant-Gulledge.

The state medical examiner’s office is still unsure of the “manner of death,” meaning what caused the brain hemorrhage, Gulledge also said.

“They know what happened but not why,” she explained.

Brower is survived by her husband, Howard Brower, and two daughters and a son. She was employed at Thermos in Batesville.

Funeral services were held yesterday at Wells Funeral Home in Batesville. Burial was at Forrest Memorial Park.

Memorials can be sent to the Cole’s Point Volunteer Fire Department.
