Lee County-  More details on the mysterious weekend death of a prominent Lee County businessman.

WALB was first to tell you, the coroner's office determined Evard Dodge drowned. Investigators said Wednesday, Dodge's heart trouble may have caused him to fall into his swimming pool.

"He had some heart conditions and we had had some cold nights and the pool was obviously cold, the water was obviously cold, and the complications probably attributed to him drowning," said Captain Miles O'Quinn, Lee County Sheriff's Office.

With the autopsy complete, so is the Sheriff office's investigation. Dodge owned the Stardust Skate Center, Stardust Car Wash, and Lighthouse Liquors.
