Pottawatomie County authorities have released the name of a Moore man who was found dead Friday, Jan. 11, 2008, in an oil pit at a work site near Brooksville. Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Investigator Jim Patten identified the man as 70 year-old Jack Lynn Hodge.

Hodge was an employee of Gator Petroleum Services, Patten said. He also lived in a trailer on the worksite, 26531 Old Highway 18, just south of the Brooksville turn. For unknown reasons, Hodge was near the oil pit area sometime late Thursday night, where there are several underground pits containing about four feet of oil. He was found in a pit Friday morning and his pickup was parked nearby. There was no ladder in this particular pit. It appeared that Hodge had tried to exit the tank before possibly being overcome by fumes. Investigators believe the man’s death was an accident.
