Further details about what happened have not been released. The incident remains under investigation by the sheriff’s office, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

“We have not ruled out anything at this point as the autopsy will hopefully provide us with more information as well as the interviews and other investigative leads we are following,” Pat Morgan of GBI told WRWD.

Clark Hills lake is located in Northeastern Georgia, near the border with South Carolina.
