LEONI TOWNSHIP - Tragedy struck at Jackson County's Gilletts Lake Sunday, when an 18-year-old was found dead in the lake by his family. James Michael Price was found floating in the lake at about noon on Sunday by his family's dock. His father pulled him from the water. Blackman-Leoni Public Safety Director Jon Johnston says that a preliminary investigation indicates Price likely struck his head either on the dock or while diving into the lake, and drowned. It's probable the teen had been in the water for hours. Family tells police that Price would have worked until midnight, and they believe he went for a late night swim alone after work.
