The body of 17-year-old Phillip Jones was recovered from rain-swollen Lake Overholser yesterday. He disappeared Wednesday after being swept into the lake while trying to cross a flooded trail. Five of the other six victims drowned when their cars were swept away by flood waters. The other victim drowned in her cellar when it flooded.
