Residents react to body found in Johnson Lake


SALISBURY, Md. – Police have an active  homicide investigation on their hands after a female’s body was found floating in Johnson Lake Sunday.

The Sheriff’s office tells us they’ve had deputies looking into this around the clock. One arrest has already been made. Sheriff Mike Lewis tells 47ABC one more arrest should be expected.

Residents of the neighborhood say that it’s a quiet neighborhood. Lauren Hill says she wouldn’t have expected something like this to happen. “It scared me when I heard about what happened because of course living in a neighborhood in the city we have our share of issues here and there just like any other neighborhood. But we’ve never had something so extraordinarily devastating happen. So my first thought was oh my goodness who’s hurt?” said Hill.

Hill says she’s glad no children were around when the body was found. “This neighborhood is one where children are outside non stop. In particular they’re down at the lake non stop so my heart stopped for a minute when I thought that maybe a child had found the body. It turns out that that’s not the case,” said Hill.
