Authorities investigating body found at Avocado Lake

FRESNO, Calif.

The body of an unidentified man was found along the shore Saturday evening.

Sheriff's investigators said the body was found along the southwest edge of the water around 6:10pm. Detectives spent the evening searching through brush for evidence.

They're not sure exactly how long the body had been at the lake. Their search, a Sheriff's spokesperson said, is more difficult because the body was found in a relatively remote area and late in the day.

Detectives have been able to interview several possible witnesses.

The name and age of the man have not been released.
