A body was found near Beaver Lake on Saturday at around 12:30 p.m., March 9, according to Arkansas Game & Fish Chief of Communications Keith Stevens. 

The body was identified as Jeffery Wolff, 57, of Rogers, according to Stevens,

The cause of death has not been determined.

On Saturday, the Benton County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) responded to a report about a boat found floating at the Highway 12 boat ramp on Beaver Lake.  A trailer and vehicle were found at the ramp, too. The vehicle was running.

Wolff’s body was found floating face down in the water about 50 yards from the shoreline, according to authorities.

Wolff was taken to Northwest Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 2:30 p.m., by medical staff. 

It’s unclear if this was a boating accident or health issue and it will be between six to eight weeks before a toxicology report is returned.
