Body Found in Lake Catherine Near Hot Springs

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas investigators say the body of a 58-year-old man has been found floating in Lake Catherine near Hot Springs. Garland County investigators say they found Bruce Edwards' body floating near the dock behind his home in the Diamondhead resort.

He had been shot in the leg. Investigators say Edwards' wife called Diamondhead police after finding the dock covered in blood and a handgun nearby.

Diamondhead police and Garland County deputies responded and began a search that turned up Edwards' body.

Investigators say Edwards' wife said she had not seen him since Wednesday. They say it's not clear how long he had been in the water or how he died.

Garland County Sheriff's Lt. Rodney Neighbors says investigators consider this an unnatural death. --- Information from: KATV-TV,
