    Case History
    On March 6, 2000, two fishermen found the nude body of this victim female floating in Melton Lake in Oak Ridge, TN. Melton Lake is in Anderson County Tennessee. It is a reservoir of the Clinch River, and is located in the Tennessee Valley Authority area. Based solely on the natural flow of the river, police believe the victim went into the water approximately a quarter mile upstream, in neighboring Knox County.
    The victim may have disappeared around February of 2000. She may have had a reason to be at the Clinche River around this time. It is possible she could have been a victim of a kidnapping.

    Woman's body found in lake

    by Beverly Majors
    Oak Ridger staff

    Oak Ridge police today are investigating a possible murder after two fishermen found the body of a woman floating on Melton Hill Lake.

    Oak Ridge Police Capt. Bill Moehl said this morning that police recovered the body of a woman about two miles downstream from Clark Center Park.

    "The body was floating but was underneath the bank near the shoreline," he said. "It was partially decomposed but pretty much intact."

    Moehl said that after the fishermen saw the body at about 2:30 p.m. Monday, they went to Clark Center Park and called police. They stayed at the dock until Officers Ron Andrus and Rich Parker arrived and then took the officers to the site.

    Moehl said the body is that of a woman possibly under the age of 30.

    "We are guessing she was fairly young but it's really hard to tell. She had no clothing, no jewelry, no tattoos, basically no identification," he said. "There was no obvious cause of death. We are checking with missing persons nationwide to get a match."

    He said police began checking missing persons reports locally Monday night and "got some preliminary hits."

    Cleland Blake, forensic pathologist, will perform an autopsy today to give police more information, Moehl said.

    "It appears to be a white female but we aren't ready to say that positively," he said.

    He said the body had been in the water for at least several weeks.

    Police today were to extend their search for clues and check campsites and other public areas farther upstream toward the park, he said.

    "We may be able to narrow the search and criteria down more," he said.

    He said police will treat the case as a homicide until proven otherwise.

    Moehl said several officers were involved in body recovery efforts. ORPD has a large boat that can carry equipment and about 10 officers.

    "But, actually, we took the body off from land," he said.

    Police were able to drive to the scene by going onto Department of Energy property and accessing a road near the swimming area of the park. The area where the body was found is called Bull Bluff and is between the park and the Graphite Reactor at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

    Autopsy shows woman drowned

    by Beverly Majors
    Oak Ridger staff

    Oak Ridge Police Lt. Mike Uher said this morning that an autopsy on a body of a woman found Monday in Melton Hill Lake showed that the woman drowned.

    Cleland Blake, a forensic pathologist in Morristown, performed the autopsy Tuesday afternoon.

    Oak Ridge Police Capt. Bill Moehl said Tuesday that police would treat the case as a homicide until proven otherwise.

    Uher said the body was taken to the University of Tennessee's Body Farm for storage. The Body Farm is a forensic science death study facility.

    Fishermen found the body at about 2:30 Monday afternoon approximately two miles downstream from Clark Center Park.

    Moehl said the body was found underneath a bank near the shoreline and was partially decomposed.

    "The body probably would not have been found had they not been fishing near the shoreline," Uher said.

    Uher said police are continuing their search for clues to the woman's identity and death.

    The body was found nude with no jewelry, no tattoos, no identification and no obvious cause of death, Moehl said Tuesday. Police are searching national registries of missing persons.

    A press release said the woman, believed to have been in her 20s, was 5 feet, 9 1/2 inches tall, weighed approximately 160 pounds and had long medium dark brown hair.

    The body had been in the water for about two to three weeks, the release said.

    The Oak Ridge Police Department is asking anyone with knowledge of a missing person fitting the description to call the ORPD at (865) 425-4399, or Officers Ron Andrus at 425-3517 or Steve Speelman at 425-3509.
