Deputy Sheriff Percy House was killed in an automobile crash while responding to a call after 9:24 am.

After failing to arrive at the call, a massive search was initiated involving multiple agencies from the surrounding counties. Approximately 14 hours later, shortly before midnight, his patrol car was found submerged in a creek off Massie Branch Road. His body was recovered by a police dive team a short time later.

It is believed that his vehicle left the roadway as a result of ice.

Deputy House had served with the Greensville County Sheriff's Office for 29 years.
