Body found afloat in Buggs Island Lake is identified

SoVaNow.com / June 17, 2013
According to the state Medical Examiner’s Office, the body recovered in Buggs Island Lake at Clarksville on Saturday has been positively identified. The use of fingerprints confirmed that the body was that of 57 year old, Kathy Keiling of Danville. Her family has been notified of the identity. She was reported missing on May 30, 2013 by the apartment manager.

Members of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office dive team, working with Clarksville Police officer James Crawford and officials with the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, were able to retrieve the body on Saturday, June 8, about a quarter mile from the old railroad bridge off Forest Hill St. in Clarksville. The remains were then sent to the Medical Examiner’s office in Richmond. There are no indications of foul play.

Authorities speculated that Ms. Keiling may have fallen into the Dan River and drowned, and her body washed downstream to Buggs Island Lake.
