A Kansas City man apparently drowned at Rocky Hollow Park this week.
Clay County deputies responded to the park, located just west of Excelsior Springs, at 6:13 p.m. Tuesday, June 17, after receiving a call reporting an apparent drowning.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the deputies recovered the body of 78-year-old Joe T. Holt from the lake located within the park. The Jackson County Coroner responded to the scene and took possession of the body, which has been transported to the Jackson County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Clay County notified the man’s family of his death, and more details may be forthcoming as additional information is learned.
