JEFFERSON — The Ashtabula County Coroner’s Office has identified the man found dead in Lake Roaming Rock two weeks after he “disappeared” into the waters.
The man was 25-year-old Keegan Maple, of the Jefferson area, said coroner’s investigator Keith Stewart. Maple’s body was found at about 5 p.m. Saturday, 30 feet from the lake dam by the Ashtabula County Water Rescue Team.
Witnesses told Roaming Shores police they saw a white male in his mid-20s who swam into the lake and “disappeared several yards south of the dam” on the afternoon of Feb. 24.
Multiple fire departments and the water rescue team searched the area with no results.
Divers on a special search detail Saturday used sonar to find Maple’s body, which was still near the lake’s bottom, Stewart said.
Maple’s body was sent to the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office for a preliminary autopsy. The cause of Maple’s death is pending a toxicology report by that office, Stewart said.
He said he did not observe any signs of physical trauma to the body, which could suggest foul play.
