A man found in the Bear Creek Reservoir Sunday afternoon is believed to have accidentally drowned.
At approximately 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, a body was discovered floating in a cove that flows into the Bear Creek Reservoir, located on Providence Road, by neighbors.
The body was recovered and transported to the State Crime Lab for an autopsy. He has been identified as Alexander Christopher Matthew Adams, age 23, of Athens.
“It appears that the victim drown and no foul play is suspected at this time and we are continuing our investigation to positively identify the body,” reports David Cochran of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office. “We believe the body to be that of a black male that had been reported missing from Clarke County on Friday, but are awaiting autopsy results.”
