MEADVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say a 31-year-old Natchez man drowned in Clear Springs Lake.
Franklin County Sheriff James Newman tells The Natchez Democrat that detectives are still investigating the death, but it appears to be an accident.
At approximately 3:30 p.m. Monday, Newman said dispatchers received the call that there was a possible drowning.
Coroner Percy Peeler said drivers recovered the body of Timothy A Malone about three hours later.
Authorities said Malone was swimming in the roped off portion of the lake.
