An investigation is underway after a retired Chesterfield firefighter was found dead in a vacant Arizona home Tuesday night, AZCentral reported. Police in Mesa, Arizona said 63-year-old Charlton Hogwood's body was found with "signs of trauma." News of Hogwood's sudden death came as a heartbreaking shock among former colleagues in the Chesterfield fire department. "He always had that ability to take something bad, and make something good of it," Hogwood's longtime partner Wilbur Peyton said. "If he saw you had a problem, he was right there. If your car was broke down, he was right there. If you’re roof leaked, he was right there."
