Smith County Game Wardens Investigate Possible Accidental Drowning

Smith County Game Wardens were called out to a possible accidental drowning Monday morning at the Emerald Bay Country Club in Bullard.  Game Warden Chris Green says when they got to the country club around 10:00 a.m., the body of Bill Green (no relation), 83 had already been recovered by family members.

Green says the last time family spoke with the victim was around 7:30 p.m.  Green says the victim went for a walk and possibly fell into Lake Palestine while crossing a bridge.  At this time, however, authorities are not sure if the victim drowned, or suffered from a heart attack, or stroke.  Green says they are investigating the incident as an accidental drowning.  The victim's body has been sent for an autopsy.
