SYLVAN GROVE, Kan. (AP) — Russell County authorities say a man drowned during the weekend at Wilson Lake in northwest Kansas.
The victim was identified as Monday as Richard Roach of Ellsworth.
Fishermen competing in a bass tournament found the body near the lake's dam early Sunday.
Russell County authorities say in a news release that alcohol appeared to be a factor in Roach's drowning.
It was the second drowning at the lake in a week. The body of 38-year-old George Willenberg of Hoisington was found a week ago Sunday at the lake. He drowned while apparently trying to swim across a cove after the boat he was on experienced mechanical problems.
