Authorities in Alabama continue to work on the case of a nude body found in Weis Lake on Thursday. Cherokee County Sheriff’s Investigator stated that a woman was walking at the state docks along Alabama Highway 9 between Centre and Cedar Bluff when she discovered the body in the lake. Don Rogers of the Cherokee County Sheriff’s office said that the body was that of a man and the only clothing that he had on was a pair of socks. He stated that the body had been taken to the Alabama Sate Department of Forensics Lab in Hunstville for an autopsy. Authorities have searched the waters of Weis Lake for an automobile, thinking that maybe the man had driven into the lake and drown, those efforts have proven futile. It has not been determined if the death was suicide, homicide or an accident. Stay tuned to Chattooga Radio News for more information as it becomes available.
