Hamilton County authorities have released the name of the man who apparently drown at Little Wall Lake south of Jewell. He is 29-year-old Zong Xiong of Nevada. A set of keys and sunglasses were discovered on the dock of the lake early Thursday evening with a vehicle parked nearby.
Search boats and divers spent Friday morning in the recovery effort. The body of Xiong was found in the lake early Friday afternoon. Authorities consider the drowning to be ruled as accidental with no indication of foul play.
