GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. -The Marshall County Coroner’s Office identified the body found in Lake Guntersville Wednesday afternoon.

First responders recovered a man’s body from the Town Creek area of Lake Guntersville. He is identified as 64-year-old Duwayne Moore from Arab.  The coroner’s office says it appears Moore suffered a sudden cardiac event causing his death, and during the cardiac event he fell from his boat.

Officials say passerby notified police after they saw a boat without an occupant, and thought they saw a body in the water.

State park law enforcement, Guntersville Police, Guntersville Rescue Squad, and Guntersville Fire and Rescue responded to the Town Creek Fishing Center off of Highway 227. That area is part of Lake Guntersville State Park and is popular for fishing and boating.
