Construction job death autopsy

An autopsy shows Jerry Wayne Kelly of the Pickens County town of Central died yesterday near Salem as the result of blunt force trauma due to Kelly’s 22-24′ fall at a home under construction at  156 Blue Water Lane–near the Oconee-Pickens line.  Oconee Coroner Karl Addis says although pre-existing medical conditions existed, the autopsy found no medical problem that contributed to Kelly’s fall and death.  According to Addis, “The ladder on which he was working appeared to have remained staionary.  As previously reported, the ladder was on top of a scaffold and leaning against a wall in an area he was painting or preparing to paint.”
