Anna, Texas (November 7, 2018) -- Anna Police were dispatched to the 2500 block of Taylor Blvd. in Anna, Texas around 10:30 a.m. this morning after a woman located a man in the creek bed about 200 yards off the roadway. Officers located the man and it was apparent he had been deceased for some time. Upon further investigation, the woman who found the man was his sister. She and several other family members had been out looking for him since he went missing on the evening of Sunday, November 4.

The man was identified as Jacob Archibald, 40, of Anna, Texas. Jacob was reported missing by his wife after he made suicidal statements to her Sunday afternoon. Collin County deputies were unable to locate Jacob at the time of the initial report.

Although we do not have an exact cause of death at this time, the preliminary investigation indicates that Jacob may have slipped and fell approximately 8 feet into the creek hitting his head on the way down. The Collin County Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy to rule out any foul play.
