The Department of Natural Resources believes the drowning of a man Monday was accidental. "The navigation lights, front a rear, were on," said Department of Natural Resources Sgt. Bo Kelly. "Two rod and reels with hooks and lines were in the water." An empty boat out on the water on Lake Sinclair is unusual.
"It was a cold morning," said First Class Ranger Jeremy Reese with the Department of Natural Resources. "The wind was blowing probably in excess of 30 miles per hour." The weather on Lake Juliette can get fierce. It didn't make it any better for three teens out on a duck hunting trip early Saturday morning.
