Clarification

* A photograph in Friday's edition of the Star incorrectly stated that a truck belonging to Gregory Hyder was left running and slipped out of gear, rolling into Watauga Lake. The truck actually was parked, in gear, with the switch off and the emergency brake on when it rolled backward into the lake as Hyder attempted to load a canoe. The Star regrets the error.

The victim was found on his bed around 4:15 p.m. by his mother, who called 911. At the time of the report, investigators were treating the death as accidental.
