Dixie Co. teacher Charles David Sheppard was killed in boating accident when struck by Ocalan's pontoon boat
Additional information was released Monday morning by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission about the scalloping death of a popular Dixie County teacher on Friday afternoon. Charles David Sheppard FWC is the agency leading the investigation into Friday's death of Charles David Sheppard, 60, of Cross City. Sheppard was pronounced dead shortly after apparently being cut by the propellor of an outboard motor on a pontoon boat carrying six adults and six children from Ocala. An autopsy is expected to be performed today at the medical examiner's office in Jacksonville to determine the exact cause of Sheppard's death.
