Body found in lake

The body of a woman found floating in Arkabutla Lake was recovered this week by county search and rescue crews.

DeSoto County Sheriff’s Department deputies and first responders were called Monday to the Dub Patton area of the reservoir after a fisherman reported sighting a body in the lake.

The victim was recovered and the coroner was notified, who also came on the scene.

According to information from the Sheriff’s Department, detectives have identified the victim, but her name will not be released as there was no indication of foul play.
