QUEENSBURY - A body was recovered last week by the Warren County Sheriff's Office in a waterway off of Hovey Pond in the town of Queensbury. The body was identified as Jeffrey S. Miswell, 47, of Bay Street, Glens Falls.
Miswell's body was discovered by a 21- year-old male who was walking around the Hovey Pond area looking for fish.
Members of the Queensbury Central Fire Department removed the victim from the water. He was at the pond fishing with a friend. The friend returned home and Miswell allegedly fell into the pond, struck his head and drowned. His bicycle and belongings were located in the park, a short distance from where he was found.
At this time the death is believed to be accidental; however, the investigation is continuing. There will be a post-mortem examination to determine the cause of death.
