Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins reports that the body of a drowning victim has been recovered. 

 

Around 3 p.m. on Friday, a professional recovery team from Ralston and Associates used their side scan sonar equipment to locate the body of  Eugene Harris, 73, of Madras. 

 

Harris, along with his son, Mark Harris both, 37, perished in a horrific boating and skiing accident on Lake Billy Chinook on September 6th.
