ARLEY - The body of Jimmy Dean Miller, 83, of Arley - who was last seen on Thanksgiving - was discovered on the shore of Smith Lake in the area of County Road 4033.
“He had apparently died at the scene where his body was found and had been there for an extended period of time,” noted Winston County Deputy Coroner Don Dimond.
Dimond pronounced Miller dead at 1:30 p.m. Christmas day, Wednesday, Dec. 25, he said.
Miller’s body was transported from the scene by the coroner’s office and later transported to the Alabama Department of Forensic Science to determine the official cause of death, Dimond said.
