A fisherman found a badly decomposed body floating in Center Hill Lake Friday morning in the area of Edgar Evins State Park and Center Hill Marina.
The identity of the deceased has not been determined. An autopsy will be conducted.
Officials say the body was face down in the water about four hundred yards upstream from the mouth of Cove Hollow. The water depth in that area is about ninety feet.
Members of the TWRA, DeKalb County Rescue Squad, DeKalb County Sheriff's Department, DeKalb EMS, Corps of Engineers Park Rangers and Edgar Evins Park Manager Carl Halfacre responded.
The body was brought to shore by boat and loaded onto a mini van at an Edgar Evins State Park Boat Ramp.
