Temple Man Drowns in Lake Belton

Search crews recovered the body of a Temple man Thursday night who drowned in Lake Belton.

Friends dropped off 54-year old Larry Dixon about 9 a.m. that morning near Sparta Valley Park to go fishing.  When they returned about 4:30 that afternoon, his fishing gear and clothes were nearby, but Dixon was nowhere to be found.

Those friends called authorities, and crews from the Bell County Sheriff's Office, game wardens and the Army Corps of Engineers located the man's body using sonar equipment.

The Morgan's Point Police Dive Team recovered the body shortly after 8 p.m.

It was sent to Dallas for an autopsy.
