The discovery came after the office announced on Friday that it was working with U.S. Marshals, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, the Tennessee Highway Patrol, and the Obion County Sheriff’s Office to search for Vowell in and around the lake.
His body was found “near the crash site,” the office said. The double homicide on Monday took place at the north end of Reelfoot Lake, authorities said.
Investigators did not reveal how victims Chance Black, 26, and Zachery Grooms, 25, both from Weakly County, were killed. But the police described Vowell as armed and dangerous.
An arrest warrant for Vowell was approved Tuesday on the basis of two first-degree murder charges, the bureau said. Authorities said he had not seen a criminal arrest in Tennessee.
An autopsy was scheduled to determine the cause of Vowell’s death, the office said.
