Body found on Lake LBJ identified as missing Junction flood victim




A body found near Circle Drive near Kingsland on Lake LBJ during Tuesday's flooding has been identified as a woman who went missing in Llano River flooding in Junction nearly three weeks ago.

The Travis County Medical Examiner has identifed the body as being that of Charlotte Moye, according to the Burnet County Sheriff's Department, which issued a press release Saturday, Oct. 20.

Sheriff's deputies responded to a call to the Lake LBJ waterfront in the 700 block of Circle Drive at 11:58 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16. The complainant believed he had located a body that had washed ashore during flooding on Lake LBJ.

Patrol deputies arrived and called investigators to the scene. The victim was pronounced deceased by Burnet County Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Roxanne Nelson and an autopsy was ordered. The body was sent to the Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office for identification and an autopsy.

Dental records of Charlotte Moye were sent to the medical examiner by the Kimble County Sheriff’s Office to assist in the identification process.

Moye was one of four people who went missing in the Llano River flooding in Junction in Kimble County on the morning of Oct. 8. The other three individuals' bodies had been located and identified, but Moye remained missing and presumed dead until her body was positively identified late Friday, Oct. 19.
