Body recovered from Lake Maxinkuckee

July 6, 2014
drowningCULVER -Indiana Conservation Officers with the help of Marshall County Sheriff’s Department and Culver Fire, Police, and EMS recovered the body of Jose Cruz Lizcano-Fernandez 28, from Logansport, Friday evening approximately 15 feet outside of the swim area at Culver Public Beach in about 5 feet of water.

Jose was missing for about four-five hours before family members noticed he was gone. When friends searched for Jose they located his shoes at the water’s edge then notified police just before 9:00pm. Indiana Conservation Officers and other emergency personnel responded with divers and sonar. In about thirty minutes Jose was found.

Indiana Conservation Officers will be conducting an investigation into the cause of the incident and an autopsy will be performed as directed by the Marshall County Coroner.

Indiana Conservation Officers cannot stress enough the importance of swimming with a buddy and wearing a life jacket. Please use caution when recreating around the water.
