HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) -

The Hopkins County Deputy Coroner has identified a body that was found Tuesday morning in a grassy area off of Railroad Street near the White Plains Ball Park.

It is that of 51-year-old Nicky Mullins.

The deputy coroner says Mullins died of natural causes.

Detectives say Mullins died of a pulmonary embolism in his lung.

A witness saw Mullins alive Tuesday morning around 5:30, and tried to help him.

But she says he was acting strange and wouldn't cooperate with her.  When another neighbor saw Mullions about 20 minutes later, he was unresponsive.

By the time an ambulance arrived, Mullins was found laying in the grassy area next to Railroad St and was already deceased.
