Authorities in Forsyth County are investigating after a partially decomposed body washed up on the shore of Lake Lanier Friday.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office was called out to Bethel Park in northeast Forsyth County just around noon. Deputies said boaters discovered the woman’s body in an “advance state of decomposition.”

The body was turned over the Forsyth County Coroner and taken the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Crime Lab for an autopsy and to get a positive identification.
