Jeff Brewer is dead at Albia, the result of a singular accident while digging a well. He had sunk the well several feet and struck a rock he was unable to move. He drilled a hole in it and inserted a dynamite cap. He lit the fuse and scrambled out of the well. The explosion followed and shattered the rock, throwing pieces out of the well, one of them coming down and striking Brewer on the head, crushing his skull.
