DERBY, Kansas – Sedgwick County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating after 34-year-old Kyle Phelps was found in a swimming pool.

It happened late Tuesday afternoon in the 4500 block of East Finn Lane.

Deputies were called to check on his welfare.

“Any time,  we have an unattended death. We will investigate using all the appropriate means to determine if there was an accident, or if there might be some foul play, but at this point that has not been determined,” said Capt.
