Body Recovered from Weiss Lake

This morning, rescue crews in Cherokee County recovered a man's body from Weiss Lake. Sheriff Jeff Shaver identified the victim as 63-year-old James T. Bradley. He was reportedly last seen at the fishing pier at Little River Marina in Cedar Bluff last night. However, authorities say they received the missing persons report on Bradley about 6:30 this morning and his body was discovered in the water three hours later. The coroner ruled Bradley's cause of death as drowning but he also said alcohol was involved in the incident.
