LIVINGSTON — Following a 911 call reporting a disturbance at a residence about five miles east of Livingston at about 1 a.m. Sunday, March 27, Polk County sheriff's deputies arrived at a home on Darden Road and found Gervin Polite, 31, deceased on the front porch. “The homeowner, Daisha Tipton, 32, was inside the residence and she was transported to the Polk County Sheriff's Office by deputies for questioning,” Lyons said. Pct. 3 Justice of the Peace Larry Whitworth held an inquest and ordered Polite's body to be taken to the Harris County Medical Examiner's office for an autopsy. Results of Monday's autopsy are pending. The investigation is continuing, Lyons said. As of Monday afternoon, no charges had been filed in connection with Polite's death.
