HUNTINGDON (AP) — Authorities say they’ve found the body of a Methodist minister who has been missing for over a week.
Mickey Carpenter’s body was recovered Saturday afternoon from a Carroll County lake where the 60-year-old had been fishing before his boat capsized April 18.
Carroll County Sheriff Bendell Bartholomew said the 25-acre lake was lowered eight feet to help the search. He said Carpenter’s body was found wedged beneath a tree.
Carpenter was the superintendent for the Paris district of the United Methodist Church and a former Dyersburg district superintendent.
