     MEXICO, Mo. (AP) _ Officials have identified an employee who
died in an accident at one of Home Depot's subsidiaries in central
Missouri.

     Birce Mesko, an assistant safety director in Mexico, Mo., says
30-year-old Kenny Baker of Auxvasse (uh-VAWZ') died Tuesday while
trying to repair a loading dock plate at Home Decorators, a
distribution center.

     Mesko says the plate fell on Baker, who was pronounced dead at a
hospital.

     Mesko told KXEO (http://bit.ly/12iD180 ) that investigators are
trying to determine whether safety mechanisms on the plate were
used correctly or were functioning properly.

     Home Depot officials said in a news release Tuesday that the
company is cooperating with investigations into Baker's death.
