Body found in Lubbock lake

LUBBOCK, Texas (KLBK) - Lubbock Police were called to 54th Street and Albany Avenue Monday morning for the report of a dead body in a playa lake.  That location is north of the South Plains Mall.

For a time, crime scene tape was placed around a portion of the lake which is inside Buster Long Park.  By 10:40 a.m. the crime tape was removed and many officers left the scene.

The first report of an issue at the lake was actually early Saturday morning.

“[Firefighters] responded on a report of a truck that went into the lake,” Lubbock Fire Rescue said.  “With assistance from the neighbors who saw the vehicle sink, Dive19 was able to triangulate the location of the truck which was unoccupied and get it out of lake.”

Then, on Monday morning someone called police to say a body was located.

A police spokeswoman said many details were not yet known and still under investigation.
