Marshall County, OK--The body of thirty four year old Teddy Pennytacker was found on the east side of North Island on Lake Texoma early Saturday morning.
Officials say two men that were fishing in that area were walking along the shore line when they discovered Pennytackers lifeless body floating just off shore.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol Pennytacker's family had not heard from him in over ten days, but say that was nothing unusual.

Officials say the family claimed Pennytacker lead a very withdrawn life, spending days to even weeks camping on North Island alone.

The report also went on to say that Pennytacker could have been suffering from depression and had gone into seclusion after allegedly going through a very difficult divorce.

According to family members Pennytacker had been using an inflatable float tube to go back and forth Taylor Island and North Island where he was believed to spend most of his time.

Investigators believe the float tube could have deflated while Pennytacker was trying to make it back to the North Island shore, leaving him to drown in the cold waters of Lake Texoma.
