The body of a man found floating in Center Hill Lake one week ago has been identified as a man who went missing 3 years ago. A fisherman discovered the badly decomposed body of Joseph Loupe last Friday in the area of Edgar Evins State Park, near where the victim's boat was found. Authorities say Loupe rented a pontoon boat from Center Hill Marina in November 2010. The boat was found later that day unoccupied, but still in gear and traveling in a circle. Authorities believe he either fell or jumped from the boat. As soon as Loupe went missing, rescue workers conducted dragging operations and TWRA officers searched the area with no success. He was entered into the National Crime Information Center as missing, but various investigations turned up nothing. The autopsy revealed Loupe was the victim of a drowning. No foul play is suspected.
