GBI officials have made an arrest in connection with the Clarks Hill Lake drowning deaths of Augusta fathers Eynn Wilson and Edward “EJ” Kirk in April.
Shontover Cynthia Kirkland turned herself in today at the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. Check back here for full details on her charges.
Witnesses told authorities that Eynn Wilson fell into the water and EJ Kirk jumped in to save him on April 25. However, Kirk’s family says the video that tells a different story. (See video below)
The case generated much attention after a video surfaced online. The video contradicts some accounts of how the men ended up in the lake while two boats were anchored together. The video appeared to show a woman pushing Edward “E.J.” Kirk into the water followed by laughter and then screams that they can’t swim.
