Man’s body recovered from Sabine Lake

PORT ARTHUR, Texas — Authorities say a man with a history of seizures was found dead in a Southeast Texas lake after a group of fishermen participating in a tournament noticed one of their boats was empty.

Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office says they got a 911 call about a possible drowning on Sabine Lake on Saturday afternoon.

After the fishermen noticed the empty boat, they began searching the area and found the 41-year-old from Florida floating face down about 100 yards from the boat.

Authorities say the investigation is on-going pending the autopsy results. The man’s identity has not yet been released.
