Fishermen find body in Lake Anna
A man whose body was found floating in Lake Anna Wednesday is believed to have died from an accidental drowning, police said.
Two fisherman discovered the body around 12:45 p.m. near the Millpond Bridge on Kentucky Spring Road in Mineral, according to Maj. Donnie Lowe of the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office.
“Somehow he fell in and it looks like an accidental drowning,” Lowe said. “It happened sometime over the weekend.”
The victim, a white male in his late 50′s or early 60′s, has not been officially identified by the Medical Examiner’s Office in Richmond, but Lowe said they do not think he is a Louisa County resident.
The medical examiner will determine cause of death. The case is under investigation, Lowe said.
