Man's Body Found in ETX Pond

Posted: Updated:

PANOLA COUNTY (KTBS) - Tragedy in East Texas as the body on an elderly man is pulled from a Panola County Pond. It happened Monday afternoon at a private pond located on CR 121 in the southern part of Panola.

Just after 2:30 p.m. a woman called the sheriff's office reporting that her 83 year old husband was missing after fishing at the couple's pond earlier in the day.

When the caller's husband didn't make it home as expected, she went out to the pond where she found his boat floating unoccupied.

Multiple agencies searched the lake; they found the missing man's body after about an hour. The body has been sent to a lab in Dallas for an autopsy. The victim's name is being withheld pending family notification.
