Body Found in Walton County Lake


The body of a 43-year-old DeFuniak Springs man was found floating mid-morning Thursday in Lake DeFuniak.

John David Langford, Jr. was found around 8:30 a.m. by a fisherman who called police.

The fisherman said he noticed something in the pre-dawn darkness and light fog in the distance and when he checked later in the daylight he saw the body.

The cause of death is undetermined, but at this point it not believed foul play is involved.

The medical examiner for the First Judicial Circuit and the DeFuniak Springs police are continuing their investigation.
