(70 year old found dead)…John Lee Lambert had gone canal fishing Tuesday.

 Deputy Coroner Rodolfo Barron says he was last seen at around 10:00 am. Barron says Lamberts wife went looking for him at around 12:30 in the afternoon. She found her husbands fishing gear on the bank of a canal near Winterhaven, close to S-24 and Levy Road. Barron says she called friends to help search for her husband. They found the body floating in the canal. The Deputy Coroner says an investigation into the death is underway. Barron would not speculate on a cause of death or how he got into the canal, but he did say the man’s extensive medical history would be taken into consideration. An autopsy is pending to determine the exact cause of death.
