RALEIGH, N.C. — Authorities are investigating the details of an apparent drowning at Kerr Lake.

Granville authorities responded to the lake. More than a hour later, Hicks' body was found approximately 15 feet from the dock.

Authorities say preliminary indications suggest it was an accidental drowning. Authorities are still conducting their investigation.
