Officials have identified the man who authorities believe died as a result of an accidental drowning last week as 26-year old Terrance Bradley Williams of Calhoun.


Gordon County authorities reported that late last week deputy sheriffs and other emergency personnel were dispatched to a lake on private property off Craigtown Road near Resaca in response to a report of a drowning.

Deputies, County Fire-Rescue Personnel and Georgia DNR officials initiated a search by boat of the area after a woman reported that her male acquaintance had went under as they were swimming.

At approximately 11:15pm, emergency personnel removed the body of a white/male from the water which was identified as being that of the missing swimmer.

Foul play is not suspected. The investigation is continuing by the Sheriff’s Office, the Coroner’s Office, and the DNR.
