Polk County Standoff Ends in Death

State law enforcement officers are investigating a Polk County standoff in the village of Luck in which a man died.

County deputies say when they went to enter the home of 28-year-old Kent Asper of Luck, he ran into a bedroom and refused to come out making verbal threats. Apser's girlfriend and two children had to leave the house.

After 14 hours a front-end loader finally pushed down the wall of the bedroom he was in. Asper's body was recovered, but authorities won't say how he died.
