Body Discovered in Lagoon in Scott County

Multiple first responders reported to the Morley Sewage Lagoon on Wednesday morning, February 24 after receiving a call that a body had been discovered in the water. A deputy say a man, reported missing on Tuesday, was walking his dog and fell into the lagoon. Distant family members found his body during an early morning search and called police. The interim county coroner was called to the scene and the body was recovered. As of right now, officials believe the man’s death is not considered suspicious. It is not clear if the man’s dog is also in the lagoon. Crews cleared the scene shortly before 9:30 a.m.
