ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, N.C. – A death investigation in Rockingham County determined a man was killed in an industrial accident, Rockingham County Sheriff’s spokesman Kevin Suthard said Tuesday.
The man’s body was discovered on Monday just after 3 p.m. It happened on East Meadow Road just outside of the Eden city limits.
