How do u go over the spillway ? I have been through there and never seen where u could go over anything, besides the falls. Am I missing something ?
Back in the 70's people used to go down on the other side of the spillway (when water was over the spillway) and ride the rapids on intertubes. My friend was one of those people who went over, Bill Mounce, it was three days before they found him.

I have lived here since before laurel lake was a lake. There have been several people drown in laurel lake but I cant think of a single one where the body wasnt eventually recovered. There was a couple from ohio that disappeared from their boat which was found going in circles on the lake, I think that was back in the early 80s. The man was later found in florida I dont remember if the woman was with him or not. It was an insurance scam. A few have went over the spillway. one or two have been killed there as well but I dont recall any of them not being recovered. I did leave here for a while in the late 70s early 80s those things may have happened while I was gone from here.
Ghost Lady who was your friends mom? when did it happen

There was a Lynch man killed there yrs ago at the spillway. Before the beach was built, water ran over the rocks and dropped over a cliff several 100 feet. He dozed off floating in a tube and went over the falls, falling to his death. I think his body was found fairly quick. Thats what I was always told anyway. There was also a man drowned on a jet ski several years ago too. Think they found him as well, a few days later.

I can remember of several drownings on Laurel Lake and the bodies were never found. Its a deep lake and it holds many secrets. This lake has several bodies in it that were reported and god only knows of how many were not reported. Pretty scary when you think about it

Please no disrespectfully replies!
On June 27, 1982, Patricia Hale Liford, of Tuttle, was involved in a boating accident near the Craig’s Creek Branch of Laurel Lake. Liford, who was 29 at the time of the accident, was boating with Sammy Sturgill, Bobby White and Lloyd Jones when the accident occurred. Her body has never been recovered.

It was on a school day probably 15 years ago. My aunt, cousin, and I decided to go to the lake. There was nobody at all there, and the water was crystal clear. I got busy chasing this little fish that was swimming at my feet, and by the time I went to waist-high water, I saw a huge dark mass about 10 feet from me. I figured it was a drop-off, so I slowly started walking toward it, but realized that this huge mass was getting closer to me faster than what I was walking. When it was just a few feet from me, I bent down to see, and there were little tentacle like things on it, almost like a swimming, breathing bush. I realized that this thing was alive and was so huge it could have easily killed me, and I turned to shoot toward the shore. It must have been just as scared because at the same time, it shot away from me back into the deep water. I have no idea what it was, but it was without a doubt as wide and long as a car. I've not had the nerve to get back into the lake since, at least not past knee-deep. Hopefully one day I might learn what it was, if it dies in my lifetime and washes on shore. Til then, I guess it's a mystery.

Im stickin to my story. I have lived here just about all my life. Im 67 years old.
I do remember the liford woman being involved in that boating accident.
The rumor was floated around that her husband mite have done her in. I cant remember if her body was ever found.
That is the only one I can think of that may have never been recovered except the guy from mt vernon that they are still looking for.
Whoever defense attorney is you must be talking about another lake.
Several bodies not recovered did not happen at laurel lake.

My mother told me she heard they where on the boat having a party, they looked over and she was gone never to be found again. Very strange! She had a sister that ended up raising her daughter.

Well my great uncle Glen Morgan and his wife Karen were never found. They drowned in the mid to late 70's and I think it was near craigs creek as well. We still have their burial plots at Locust Grove.
