Body of Gwinnett Man Pulled from Lake Lanier

The body of Robert Armistead, 54, was pulled from the lake Sunday.

The Hall County Fire Department's Dive Team reportedly pulled the body of 54 year old Robert Armistead of Lawrenceville from Lake Lanier Sunday according to CBS Atlanta.

The Hall County Sherrif's Department informed Lawrenceville Patch that Armistead's 10 to 15 foot jon boat was found overturned in the water about 10 feet off the shore. Armistead's body was taken to the DeKalb Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy and toxicology.

The dive team responded to a call of a capsized boat near the Aqualand Marina at around 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

The Hall County Sheriff's Department told the television station that foul play is not suspected.

There were a number of drowing deaths on Lake Lanier last summer including the Prince brothers and superstar Usher's former step son, Kile Glover.
