2nd Body Found At Pyramid Lake After Boating Accident
CASTAIC (CBSLA.com) — Divers Wednesday found a second body at Pyramid Lake in Castaic following a boating accident over the weekend.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Emergency Services Detail divers located the body of 64-year-old Jack Thirasack in Pyramid Lake at approximately 9:15 a.m., a Sheriff’s spokesperson said.
Detectives believe that Thirasack died as a result of drowning, although his exact cause of death is unknown.
The body was found 20 feet from shore, approximately 30 feet northeast from where the body of 52-year-old Rich Tanovan was discovered Sunday near the sunken boat.
On Sunday, a deputy patrolling the lake was flagged down by a man on a personal watercraft who reported seeing something suspicious, the Associated Press reported.
He directed deputies to the south part of the lake, where they found the bow of a boat sticking out of the lake. Tanovan’s body was found underwater nearby.
He couldn’t be revived and authorities say he apparently drowned. The boat appeared to be undamaged.
