Share this post

The body of a missing 27-year-old man has been recovered from Lake Maxinkuckee in Marshall County.   Indiana Conservation Officers with the help of Marshall County Sheriff’s Department and Culver Fire, Police, and EMS recovered the man in about 15 feet outside of the swim area at Culver Public Beach in about 5 feet of water.  Indiana Conservation Officers say Jose Cruz Lizcano-Fernandez of Logansport was last seen swimming at the Culver Public Beach and was missing for about four to five hours before family members noticed he was gone.  Officials say when friends searched for him they located his shoes at the water’s edge then notified police just before 9 pm Friday. Indiana Conservation Officers and other emergency personnel responded with divers and sonar, and within about thirty minutes located the man's body.   Indiana Conservation Officers will be conducting an investigation into the cause of the incident and an autopsy will be performed as directed by the Marshall County Coroner. Indiana Conservation Officers stress swimming with a buddy and wearing a life jacket and ask everyone to use caution around water during the holiday weekend.
