The body of a man pulled from Nickajack Lake in Marion County last week has been identified as Charles Wayne Pitts Jr. of Nashville. Pitts was the subject of a missing-person investigation after he disappeared from his north Nashville home December 5.
A body was found floating in the lake near Marion County Park last week and, using dental records, was identified as Pitts. Marion County is handling the death investigation, but early indications are that foul play was not a factor.
Pitts was last seen December 5 driving his silver Dodge Charger, which was found near the lake. He quit his job prior to his disappearance.
