A Fieldale Farms employee died of “low-voltage electrocution,” according to Hall County Coroner Marion Merck’s office, where an autopsy was performed. Ricardo Aburto, 31, of Gainesville, was transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center July 7 from the Murrayville poultry processing plant. “Early indicators suggested that it may have possibly been a work-related death,” Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Deputy Nicole Bailes said at the time.
