Body found in White Rock Lake

A woman’s body was pulled from White Rock Lake near the 4500 block of W. Lawther sometime around 7 a.m. Saturday.

It was about 7:45 a.m. when my running group passed the scene. Obviously something serious was going down — yellow crime tape; several police and emergency vehicles on site; and divers in the water. Some runners hanging around the scene told us the police had just retrieved a body.

The police report doesn’t tell us much, except that a passerby spotted and reported the body of the unidentified 70-year-old white female sometime around 6:30 this morning. We’ll bring you updates as they develop.
