Two Bodies Found in Idaho Waters Over the Weekend

Two bodies—one in North Idaho and one in the eastern part of the state—were found on July 19 and 20. 

The Coeur d'Alene Press reported the body of an adult male washed up on the shoreline of Lake Coeur d'Alene near North Idaho College. A college employee on her way to clean some restrooms on the beach discovered the body around 6 a.m. Saturday morning.  The Kootenai County Sheriff's Office took the body as evidence, and gave no further information on who the person was, his cause of death, and how long he had been in the water.

Several hundred miles away, a search plane discovered the body of 28-year-old Charles Tyson Sims of Bear Lake County. The body was found in Blackfoot Reservoir around 8:50 a.m on Sunday. The Idaho State Journal reported that a search for Sims lasted nearly three days, after he drowned in the reservoir while swimming Thursday afternoon.
