Body found in Thurmond Lake identified

 

Lincoln County authorities have identified a 36-year-old man who was found dead in Thurmond Lake on Friday.

Coroner Paul Reviere said Saturday that Wayne Pat­rick Mravlja, of Blythe, was pronounced dead about 5:10 p.m. after he was discovered about 100 yards off shore near a small island in the Chamberlain’s Ferry Boat landing area.

Boaters found the body and called the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Of­fice about 4 p.m. Sheriff Bruce Beggs said the preliminary cause of death is drowning, but the investigation is ongoing.

The body was taken to the Geor­gia Bureau of Investigation’s crime lab in Atlanta for an autopsy scheduled for Monday, Reviere said.
