Body Of Post Falls Businessman Found

The body of a Post Falls businessman missing for nearly a week in Lake Coeur d’Alene was recovered Friday night, the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office said. Gary Scott “Scotty” Shawver, 57, had jumped into the lake Aug. 2 to retrieve a hat that fell into the water. The owner of an auto body shop, Shawver apparently drowned. The sheriff’s office had not been able to locate the body all week. On Friday about 8:30 p.m., the agency was contacted by a local dive company that had been diving in the Stevens Point area and found a body in 60-foot-deep water. The sheriff’s Recreation Safety Division and dive team responded to the scene and recovered Shawver’s body from the lake bottom. Friends and family members of Shawver were on the scene during the recovery/SR. More here.
