LAUREL, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say the body of a 13-year-old boy has been recovered in a southeastern Indiana creek, the last of six people presumed to have drowned when two vehicles were swept off a roadway after torrential rainfall.
Franklin County Coroner Brian Baxter says the boy’s body was found Saturday morning in Sanes Creek. The bodies of his sisters and the three siblings’ 35-year-old mother, Felina Lewis, were recovered Friday.
The victims from the other vehicle were identified as 47-year-old Shawn Roberts and 48-year-old Burton Spurlock. Both men’s bodies were found Friday.
All of the victims were from Laurel.
