Douglas Lake drowning
Jefferson County authorities are trying to make a positive identification of an adult female who's body was found floating in Douglas lake on Wednesday. Sheriff GW "Bud" McCoig said the body was observed at about 2:45 pm.,in the Muddy Creek community but there was no identification on the body. "Neighbors were walking along the lake when they spotted the body floating face down, in the Moon Hill Bridge area of Douglas Lake. The body has been sent to a forensics lab for an autopsy and for identification. We're tracing down a vehicle we found in the area and we are hoping we might identify the victim through it." The sheriff says the vehicle in question had been parked near the lake for a day and a half when it was located on Wednesday, and evidence indicates the body had not been in the water for a long time. The Jefferson County Rescue Squad and Chestnut Hill Volunteer Fire Department were called to the scene to assist in the recovery.
