Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher has identified a body recovered from Lake Murray around 11 am May 5.

The body of Timothy Steven Peele, 51, of Irmo was recovered near the Lake Murray Dam by the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.

Peele put his boat in at a public boat ramp near the dam around 6:30 am, and the boat was discovered unmanned in the same area a short time later, which prompted the search for him.

The findings of an autopsy, conducted on May 6 determined Peele’s death was the result of a medical event; therefore, his death has been ruled as natural.
