Kristy Sams was well known in town. She was heavily involved with local softball, cheerleading and dance programs. She was involved with the Friends of Milan Football, a booster program for Milan High School’s football team.
The 38-year-old was discovered by her young daughter in the pool at the family’s home on Ripley Street in Milan on Saturday morning, according to Holton Town Marshal Ron Buchanan, the lead investigator on the case.
Sams’ daughter ran to a neighbor for help. Neighbors and first responders came to the rescue, but Sams was pronounced dead after being rushed to Margaret Mary Health in Batesville.
No foul play is suspected. An exact cause of Sams’ death remains under investigation by the Ripley County Coroner, Buchanan says.
