Body found in front of Lowe's

Live Oak —

Live Oak Police Department officers responded to the area of US 129 in front of Lowe's Thursday night for the report of someone lying on the side of the roadway. Upon arrival, officers discovered an unresponsive male lying on top of a storm drain on the northeast corner of the store's entrance. Suwannee County Fire/Rescue responded to the scene, but resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful.

After an investigation by LOPD detectives, it was determined 60-year-old Timothy Boyette of Live Oak was riding a red moped northbound on the sidewalk of US 129. It was determined, for an unknown reason, that Boyette failed to negotiate the curve of the sidewalk and ran into the storm drain head on. Boyette was reportedly ejected from the moped and landed on the storm drain. Reports say it appears the fall on the drain caused a lethal head injury.

Boyette's remains were transported to the Medical Examiner's Office in Jacksonville for further investigation.
