COLLINS, MS (WDAM) - Covington County authorities are investigating the death of a Collins man whose body was recovered Saturday afternoon from a private lake.
Coroner Chris Daquila said Travis Jones, 28, was pronounced dead after divers recovered his body shortly before 5:30 p.m.
A friend said Jones went under water about one hour earlier as they were fishing. He was unable to pull him out.
Daquila said Jones had a heart attack recently, so his body has been sent to Jackson for an autopsy to determine if he drowned or died of heart-related problems.
