Soul singer and musician Isaac Hayes has died, according to Memphis TV station WMC-TV. He was 65.

The station’s Web site attributes the report to Shelby County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Steve Shular, saying a sheriff’s deputy was called to Hayes’ home after the singer’s wife found him on the floor near a treadmill.

WMC-TV goes on to say Hayes was taken to Baptist East Hospital in Memphis, where he was pronounced dead at 2:08am. An investigation into the death is continuing, the station says.
