After searching for two days...rescue crews pulled a Scottsville man from Barren River Lake after he drowned over the weekend. Reports say 49-year-old Roger Duke was last seen Thursday after leaving his job at Sumitomo Electrical Wiring System to go fishing. His truck and fishing gear were located Thursday night in the Spillway parking lot...where he had been fishing off a bank. His body was found yesterday below that area. Allen County Coroner Mike Wimpee says the preliminary autopsy confirms Duke drowned.
