Body Found at Lakesite Marina


This afternoon around 3:08 p.m. two parties saw what they thought was a mannequin in the water around Lakesite Marina located at 9546 Hixson Pike. They proceeded to approach the area and saw that it was in fact a human body. They left the area and called for law enforcement to respond to the scene.

When deputies arrived at the Marina they were assisted with officers from Tennessee Wildlife Agency as well as Dallas Bay Volunteer Fire Department. Tennessee Wild Life removed the body from the water and Hamilton County Medical Emergency Services transported to the Hamilton County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The death is being carried as DOA undetermined as of now and Investigators will wait for the Medical Examiners report. They will also work to identify the male party and to make notification to family members.

The investigation is continuing and being handled by Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division. Additional information will be released as it becomes available.
