CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A man that drowned at Lake Corpus Christi has been identified as 65-year-old Willie Carl McDonald from Oklahoma.
McDonald's body was found Sunday by Texas Parks and Wildlife officers near Lakeshore Gardens after a three-day search.
McDonald had been visiting a summer vacation spot near Lake Shore Gardens with his wife, officials said. On Thursday, November 19, McDonald went fishing in Lake Corpus Christi on what officials called a paddle-type boat.
He did not return and his boat was found without him in it.
It is not clear what happened to McDonald on the lake, Sheriff Oscar Rivera with the San Patricio County Sheriff's Office said, but mentioned that the man did suffer from health issues.
Rivera said McDonald was not wearing a lifejacket.
An autopsy is pending in the case.
