The body recovered from Lawrence Lake earlier this week has been identified as 44-year-old Christopher Larry Curtis. The cause of death has yet to be determined. Officials are waiting on toxicology results.

APD officers were called to the Playa lake, already experiencing increased water volume from the recent heavy rains, June 5th, to investigate a possible deceased person. The APD dive team later recovered the body of a deceased male, now known to be that of Curtis.
