According to TWRA, 60-year-old Daniel Keeling was fishing on his bass boat on Sunday morning when he ended up in the water. Officers were called to the lake when people spotted the boat unoccupied around 11:15 a.m.

Officers arrived to the West Sandy portion of Kentucky Lake and found Keeling’s boat and began a search in the area. The Henry County Sheriff’s Department and Rescue Squad handled the search, and Keeling’s body was recovered a few hours later.
