JESSAMINE COUNTY, Ky. (FOX 56) – On Sunday, Jessamine County Sheriff Kevin Corman was found dead inside his home on West Maple St.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Adam Hall says his team in the Richmond post was notified around 3:30 p.m. Sunday after a family member found him earlier in the afternoon.

The entire county mourned the sudden loss of its four-term sheriff, and with speculation quickly circulating over the cause of death, Hall was quick to address that Corman died of natural causes.

“No foul play is suspected whatsoever, it just appears to be natural causes,” Hall said.

According to the Jessamine County Sheriff’s website, Corman was a lifelong resident of Jessamine County, graduating from Jessamine County High School, and serving as Sheriff since 2006.

Corman recently ran for re-election but was unseated by Sgt. Kevin Grimes with The Nicholasville Police Department.

Prior to his role as Sheriff, Corman was Deputy Sheriff in 1986 and served in the Army Reserves from 1975-to 1981.

He is survived by his wife Tammy, his two children, and three grandchildren.

Fellow agencies also mourned the loss of one of their own, who served Jessamine County for 36 years.

“Our thoughts just go out with the Sheriff’s office and the family, anytime there’s a death, it’s tragic for everyone. But I do just want you all to know that nothing at this point appears to be any foul play,” Hall said

Hall stated that Corman’s body is being taken to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Frankfort where an autopsy could shed light on his cause of death.

Sheriff Kevin Corman was 64 years old.
