Body of man pulled from Lake Marion

SUMMERTON, S.C. (AP) – A man’s body has been pulled from a South Carolina lake.

Clarendon County Coroner Bucky Mock told local media outlets that the body of 47-yar-old Joseph Cutter was found in Lake Marion late Sunday. Mock said investigators were called around 4 p.m. to look for Cutter. Friends said they had seen Cutter jump from the U.S. 301 bridge into the water and he did not resurface.

The body was found near the bridge which is parallel to a bridge over Interstate 95.

Mock says an autopsy has been scheduled for Tuesday. He said the water is relatively shallow at the bridge.
