TWRA Recovers Body in Norris Lake

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) have recovered the body of a man in the Big Creek area of Norris Lake.

 

The search began after a shoreline boat crash reported Saturday where a boat was seen engulfed in flames. The body of an unspecified 51-yerar-old was found roughly 60-feet from the boat leading investigators to believe the boater was ejected from the vessel prior to the crash.

 

The name of the victim is being withheld out of respect for the family. The vessel was a total loss.
