The mayor of a Louisiana town has died after being injured in a fall last week. McKneely Funeral Home in Amite said funeral services will be held Friday for 74-year-old Mayor Milton “Buddy” Bel.
The Daily Star reported that Bel died Sunday after a fall early last week. Bel’s family issued a statement Monday calling him “an incredible husband, father, grandfather and brother.”
Bel was elected mayor of Amite in 2012 and had begun the last year of his second term.
