DERBY, Kan. (AP) — Authorities have identified a man found dead in a backyard pool in south-central Kansas, but they still don’t know the circumstances of the death.

The Sedgwick County sheriff’s department said Wednesday the man has been identified as 34-year-old Kyle Phelps, of Derby.

Deputies found Phelps floating in the pool behind a Derby-area home Tuesday afternoon after being asked to check on his welfare. The deputies performed CPR until paramedics arrived and pronounced Phelps dead.

Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Stover tells The Wichita Eagle ( ) that Phelps was connected to a person who lives at the home and was a frequent visitor.

The investigation into the death continues.
