The Darke County Coroner’s Office and the Darke County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the death of a twelve year old child identified as Jordan T. Pond of Versailles. On Friday evening, August 20, 2010 at approximately 10 PM the child suffered a sudden cardiac arrest at the Darke County Fair near the area of Gate 6. An EMS unit stationed on the grounds came to the aid of the child. The child was rushed to Wayne Hospital across the street from the fairgrounds where he was later pronounced dead.

Darke County Coroner Dr. T. Kathman reports that preliminary findings suggest that the cause of death is natural. A final determination on cause and manner of death is pending further forensic testing which could take several weeks.

There is no evidence at this time to suggest that the child’s death is associated with his attendance at the Darke County Fair.
