HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. – An autopsy has been completed to determine the cause of death for a man who drowned at Old Hickory Lake in Sumner County.

Officials said the man drowned around 3 a.m. Sunday at the Creekwood Marina, just off Sanders Ferry Road in Hendersonville.

The victim has been identified as 34-year-old Anthony Hilliard from Springfield.

Two friends who were with Hilliard told investigators they were leaving the marina when the victim somehow fell into the lake. First responders from the Hendersonville Fire Department were able to retrieve Hilliard from the water but he could not be revived.

It was not immediately known if alcohol was a factor in the incident. Authorities said the drowning was not being investigated as suspicious.

The results of the autopsy have not yet been released.
