Body found floating in Broad Creek
The body of a Prince George County man, Charles Leroy Lundie, 65, was found Sunday morning floating in Broad Creek between Norton and Norview marinas, said the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office received a 911 call at 7:39 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 4, from a Deltaville resident reporting that he had come upon the body. The Virginia Marine Resources Commission (VMRC) was contacted to dispatch a boat to assist the sheriff’s office in the recovery operation. Also called was the ladder truck of the Lower Middlesex Volunteer Fire Department of Deltaville.
The body of Lundie was removed from Broad Creek and transported to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Richmond for an autopsy.
The official cause of death cannot be determined until the autopsy results are finalized and released, said the sheriff’s office; however, at this time, the man’s death is not being considered suspicious or criminal in nature.
Lundie was a resident of Disputanta in Prince George County.
