SAYRE — The state medical examiner Friday released the names of two people found at the bottom of Foss Lake last year.
The remains of Jimmy Allen Williams, 16, and Cleburn Hammack, 42, were among six bodies found in two cars that were pulled from the lake Sept. 17. The other four people haven’t been identified.
Hammack, of Sayre, was found in a 1952 Chevrolet sedan along with two other bodies. Williams, also of Sayre, was found in a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro with two other bodies. Both deaths likely were due to accidental drowning, according to medical examiner reports.
Authorities say they think the 1952 Chevrolet is linked to a case in which three adults were reported missing from Canute in 1969. The state medical examiner reported the remains inside the car were those of two males and a female.
