Legendary soul music performer Isaac Hayes died this afternoon after  he was 
found unconscious in his Shelby County home. 
A family member found the entertainer next to a running treadmill at  about 1 
p.m. Sunday, said Steve Shular, spokesman for the Shelby County  Sheriff's 
Office. 
Hayes was rushed to Baptist Memorial Hospital, where he was  pronounced dead 
at 2:10 p.m. 
Hayes' wife, their 2-year-old son and another family member had gone  to the 
grocery store around noon, Shular said. When they returned, they found  Hayes 
unresponsive. 
Rescue workers responded to a 911 call, and they performed CPR at  Hayes' 
home at 9280 Riveredge in the eastern part of Shelby County, near Forest  Hill 
and Walnut Grove. 
The Sheriff's Office is conducting a routine investigation, said  Shular, but 
“nothing leads us to believe this is foul play.”
