RIPLEY — The body of Ripley Mayor Kerry W. Hill was found yesterday at his residence. He was 75.

Police Chief Scott White says there were no signs of foul play. White says Hill’s son, Brad, had been unable to reach Hill by phone, went by his father’s apartment and found his body.

Alderman Bonnie Caviness will serve as acting mayor until a new mayor is elected.

Officials with McBride Funeral Home said today funeral arrangements are pending.

Hill served as mayor a number of years ago, but then was out of the public eye for some years. He was elected mayor again in 2009, defeating incumbent mayor Mike Harrison.
