A man identified as Ira "Cat" Basden, about 73, was found dead in a field near his home in the rural area south of Ava this morning. Jackson County Sheriff Arch Edwards said tentative identification was made by two neighbors who found the body. Jackson County Coroner Floyd Crawshaw was en route to the scene at noon for positive identification.

Edwards said death appeared due to natural causes. It appeared the man had been dead two or three days, the sheriff said.

Basden lived on Kinkaid Creek between Rt. 149 and Ava, just west of the Mud Line Road. Funeral arrangements are pending at the Meyer-Denny Funeral Home in Murphysboro.
