Recovery efforts at the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area.

The final body has been recovered from Bighorn Lake after a boating accident a week ago left two three people dead and one injured.

The body of Christian Scoville, 35, of Billings, was recovered Friday evening, Christy Fleming, public information officer for the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, said Saturday morning.

On Friday, Utah-based company Potable Divers used an underwater remote operated vehicle to locate Kelley’s body. A video on the recreation area's website posted Saturday morning showed rangers in boats escorting Scoville's remains, placed inside a craft, into the Ok-A-Beh marina.

His body was turned over to Big Horn County Coroner Terry Bullis, Fleming said. The lake reopened to boaters around 9 p.m. on Friday. It had been closed while crews searched for the Scoville.

The Aug. 11 boating accident killed Tammy Scoville, 59. Her body was recovered from the water last Sunday. The accident occurred on the lake near dayboard 7, about 7 miles south of Yellowtail Dam on the Montana side of the national recreation area.
