Search teams found a woman's body in Lake Travis Friday morning, near the area where a woman fell from a party barge. The Travis County Sheriff's Office said a dive team found the body at a depth of 117 feet around 10:30 a.m. The body has not been officially identified as Rachel Kathleen Scott, who fell off the top deck of a party barge May 19 near Volente Beach and disappeared. After days of searching, divers and other teams could not find her. Divers with both Travis County and the Austin Police Department periodically checked the area this summer. That's what they were doing Friday when the body was found. The body will go to the medical examiner, who will determine the identity.

It’s Austin’s playground, what do you expect?
Where was Brett? Hmmmmmm
Was Christine Ford partying again?
The lake is NOT 860 ft deep!
You are probably reading the surface elevation of the lake.
210 when full, deepest lake in Texas.
210 is still pretty deep though...
Seems odd that she didn’t float eventually.
Travis? I knew his brother Well, he was deep too...
Nope, about 210 feet.
I was wondering how many lead weights she was wearing, myself. At some point one would think she’d build up enough gasses to float.
The trick is turning around and swimming back up without passing out first.
Lots of big catfish down there.
Thanks for that info, tho still curious re decompositional gas buildup as PAR mentioned above.
Been down to 100’ in Travis...dark and COLD!
I am confused.
I was always taught that unless the lake was VERY cold, as the body decomposes, the gases in the body cause the corpse to rise to the top of the water....
How cold is that lake?
My cardiac surgeon committed suicide at Center Hill Lake on the Cumberland Plateau
In the deepest part
Shot himself and weight his body....in his kayak
People think anyhow.....a few witnesses.......saw him preparing.....several affairs with same nurse and a couple failed marriages
Had more volume of open heart procedures than anyone alive at the time
St Thomas Nashville
Body never found
Water depth around 200 foot
