Deputies investigating July 4 Lake LBJ drowning

 

 

 

The body of a 38-year-old white male from Austin was recovered Wednesday, July 4, from the Llano River arm of Lake LBJ in Kingsland after the man apparently drowned trying to swim across the lake.

Llano County Sheriff's Chief Deputy John Neff said his department received a 911 call about a missing swimmer at 2:55 a.m. Wednesday. Deputies responded to the scene and requested assistance from Texas Parks & Wildlife game wardens.

Neff said four individuals had decided to swim from one side of the lake to the other near the Ranch to Market Road 2900 in Kingsland. One of the swimmers apparently turned back while the other three continued to swim across the channel.
