The body of a missing 19-year-old man has been recovered from CastaicLake by Los AngelesCounty sheriff’s officials and the cause of death is still under investigation.
“It’s a criminal investigation,” said sheriff’s Sgt. Rod Kubly of Emergency Services Detail. However, foul play is not thought to be a factor. At Thursday, sheriff’s officials, San Bernardino Dive Unit and Los AngelesCounty lifeguards retrieved the body of Melvin McDaniel, who had been missing since Sunday. McDaniel, a Los Angeles resident, joined a group of friends and family members for a routine “males’ day out” at CastaicLake.
