Body found in Lake Hawkins

A body was found last weekend in Lake Hawkins.

Gene Vatin of Longview was located 30 feet from the north shore of the lake. It is not clear if this is a case of drowning. Officers responded to a call concerning an abandoned vehicle and determined it belonged to Vatin. They then received the report of a body in the lake.

The case is under investigation. The body has been sent to Dallas for an autopsy.
