GBI plans autopsies on 2 men found dead in lake

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) The Georgia Bureau of Investigation plans autopsies on the bodies of two men who went missing after a Jan. 2 fishing trip.

Autopsies on Mason Cox and David Wood are set for Monday.

Police divers found their bodies in Lake Lanier Friday evening.

Dawson County sheriff's Major Tony Wooten said there were no initial signs of trauma.

Hundreds of mourners packed Dawsonville's North Georgia Church on Sunday to remember the 20-year-old men. Friends described the two as adventurous and full of life.

Many people in the tight-knit community are struggling to understand what could have happened to the athletic friends who grew up on the lake.
