The Sevier County Sheriff's Office reported that Maximus was found with a rope from a tetherball pole (post ball game) around his neck. Despite the efforts of those present, the child was not breathing and had no pulse. Paramedics provided instructions on how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) before paramedics arrived.

Maximus was rushed to a local hospital and then flown to a medical center in Salt Lake City, where he was sadly pronounced dead. The exact cause of death is being investigated by the state medical examiner's office. Sheriff Nathan Curtis confirmed that no signs of foul play or suspicious activity in this tragic incident.

The local community is devastated by the loss of Maximus. His aunt, Laurie Ann Thor, shared his grief on a GoFundMe page created to support the family. "Maximus was a beautiful, sweet, loving boy who brought so much joy to his family and his community," she wrote. "Our hearts are broken as we struggle to make sense of this tragedy. We will always mourn his passing."

Maximus's friends remember him as someone brave and protective. Treyton, a close friend, told local media: "He always defended others if someone spoke badly about us...he wasn't afraid to put people in his place."

The community has come together in solidarity to support the family in this difficult time. The GoFundMe page has exceeded expectations, raising more than 25 thousand dollars (about 435 thousand 250 Mexican pesos) in donations. Neighbors and friends continue to share messages of support as the community struggles to understand this tragic loss.
