LINCOLNTON, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Autopsies are scheduled Friday for three siblings who died last week at Clarks Hill Lake.

The siblings were identified as Raven Powell, 22; Mason Powell, 4; and Sawyer Powell, 3.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has also released an incident report about the apparent drownings, which happened sometime between 5 and 9 p.m. June 23 at the Amity Recreation Area, 5782 Thomson Highway.

The report basically lists the names of the people involved, the date and the location – all information that had already been released.

Meanwhile, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources said Friday that the agency is working on its report now, but waiting on autopsy results. An official with the agency said this has been made more difficult by a large backlog faced by the crime lab.
