Body of Missing Boater Recovered from Lake Barkley
The body of a western Kentucky man has been recovered from Lake Barkley.
31-year-old Dustin Fox of Princeton, Kentucky, had been missing since Saturday afternoon when witnesses said he was ejected from a boat and then hit by it.
The witnesses said he did not resurface and no one else was on the boat.
In a release, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources said conservation officers responded and found an unmanned boat going around in circles near Davenport Bay.
A search was launched and officers recovered Fox’s body at about midday Sunday.
The agency said an autopsy would be conducted, and the incident remains under investigation.
