Shelby County District Attorney Kenneth Florence says the body of 54-year old Danny Akridge of Center, was exhumed last week and sent to a Dallas forensic lab in order to rule out foul play in his death. Akridge died in September, and the family has requested the exhumation to answer any questions about the death. Florence had the body exhumed last Friday, and did say there was blood at the scene of the death, but that could have been from natural causes. Akridge’s body was found in his home off of State Highway 7 West in the Aiken Community. A preliminary autopsy came back inconclusive and Akridge was buried at Mt. Herman Cemetery on Sept. 13.
