WEEMS—Graham McCormick, 31, of Georgia died as a result of a boating accident, according to Major William Webb, chief deputy with the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department.
McCormick’s body was discovered by a passing boater on Carter Creek, near the end of Weems Road, August 11. He was in Lancaster County visiting friends, said Webb.
Although the sheriff’s department has not received an official cause of death from the state medical examiner, Webb said there was trauma to the body and investigators have determined McCormick was involved in a boating accident.
Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant on August 24 of a Boston Whaler owned by Gary Hooper of Irvington.
The death remains under investigation, according to Webb.
