Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s deputies received word of a possible drowning near Tecumseh Saturday evening.

Around 6:30 p.m., someone called 911, saying a man walked into a pond near Highland and Stevens and never came back out.

Deputies tell us people near the pond had been drinking and an argument broke out.

On Sunday afternoon, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol dive team recovered the body of a man in his mid 30s. The medical examiner was on scene and transported the body for an autopsy.

OHP and Tecumseh Police assisted in recovering the body. The victim's identity has yet to be released.
