The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office and Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation are investigating after a man was found dead in the backyard of a home near West Main Street and Shawnee Road Friday evening.

Deputies say a woman called 9-1-1 around 5 p.m. to report a man covered in blood at the house.
