Man found drowned in Lake Marion

ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) - Orangeburg County authorities say a Eutawville man has been found drowned in Lake Marion.

The man had been at the lake with friends.

Deputy Coroner Sean Fogle says the victim was 60-year-old Leroy Adair Dantzler.

The friends said Dantzler stepped outside late Sunday night and did not return.

His body was found on the shore of Lake Marion about 200 feet from the pier he had been fishing earlier.
