His body was found under his tractor. The Stewart Town police reported that Palmer set out at 7:00 a.m. to do some farming and was driving his tractor.
He was later found at about 4:45 p.m on Saturday, June 13, by a passer-by who approached the supposed scene and informed the police.
The police have theorized that Palmer may have lost control of the tractor, which hit an embankment and overturned thus killing him.
Investigations are ongoing to find the exact circumstances surrounding the death of Palmer.
