HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. (KAIT) - The Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office has identified a man who drowned earlier this month in Greers Ferry Lake.

Sheriff Chris Brown said deputies, along with the search and rescue crew, responded to Damsite Park around 2:41 p.m. Monday, June 6.

They were told a man had gone underwater and not resurfaced.

By 3:15 p.m., crews had located 21-year-old Devin Grant of Memphis. An ambulance took him to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Brown said Wednesday, June 15, is office investigating the circumstances and asks any witnesses to contact Detective Aldrighetti at 501-362-8143.

“We count every death a tragedy,” Brown said. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. Grant’s family in this time of mourning.”
