New details on a body that was found at Arkabutla Lake this week. Search crews were called Monday to the Dub Patton area of the lake after a fisherman reported seeing a body floating in the water. Divers recovered the body and notified the coroner, who pronounced the victim dead at the scene.
The DeSoto County Sheriff’s Department says the person has not yet been identified, but they know it’s a woman. It’s not know how long the body had been in the water. Although there was no sign of foul play, the victim’s body has been taken to a forensic science center for an autopsy.
