A man's body has been recovered from the Ross Barnett Reservoir following a boating accident.

He has been identified as 46-year-old Charles Bogan of Jackson. According to the coroner, his death is being investigated as a drowning, but an autopsy is being performed to determine the exact cause of death. 

Reservoir police said that two men fell out of a boat near the Breakers subdivision Sunday night.
