FREMONT — Sheriff’s deputies and state agents are investigating the death of Fremont’s former mayor after his body was discovered in a home he owned Sunday afternoon.

Mayor Floyd Anthony “Andy” Evans was found deceased at 129 Evans Farm Road near Interstate 795 just outside the Fremont town limits, Maj. Richard Lewis of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office said in a release.

Authorities haven’t said how Evans died or whether foul play is suspected.

The State Bureau of Investigation is assisting Wayne County deputies in the investigation because Evans is a former public official, Lewis said.
