Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division agents found the body of a Baton Rouge man in the Bogue Chitto River in St. Tammy Parish Saturday morning.
The body of William Holloway, 63, recovered by agents from the river around a mile in a half downriver from where they found the capsized 14-foot aluminum flat bottom boat on Dec. 28, 2011.
Campers near the Bogue Chitto River alerted LDWF agents of Holloway's body in the river. Search teams found his wife, Kathy Holloway, 61 on Jan. 12 about a quarter of a mile from the capsized vessel.
LDWF agents along with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office (STSO) and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) have searched for the couple since Dec. 28 when they were first alerted by a passing boater on the Bogue Chitto found a capsized vessel.
LDWF retrieved the boat and is investigating the cause of the boating incident.
Kathy and William's bodies have been turned over to the St. Tammany Parish Coroner's Office for autopsy to determine official causes of death.
