WEST CORRINE -- An 84-year-old man was found dead Wednesday night on his property, Box Elder Sheriff's Deputy Chief Kevin Potter said.
Farmer Milton Yagi told his wife he was going out to change an irrigation gate on his land near 7200 West and 2600 North.
When he didn't come back, police were sent out to look for him around 7:20 p.m.
His body was found a short time later in the irrigation canal.
Potter said the death did not appear suspicious and that man most likely fell.
