Man’s body recovered from lake

An elderly Warsaw man’s body was recovered from Little Chapman Lake in Kosciusko County late Wednesday morning, according to Indiana Conservation Officers.

A preliminary investigation was conducted by Indiana Department of Natural Resources conservation officers.

A published report stated Officer Jon Boyd, public information officer for the DNR, said a side-scan sonar was used to scan the lake.

Edward Hundley, 70, of Warsaw, was recovered from Little Chapman Lake after being reported missing around 3:50 p.m. Tuesday. Witnesses stated that the male was swimming from a pontoon boat when he went underwater. A search and recovery operations was suspended Tuesday evening due to severe weather.

Officer Boyd was also reported as saying that they are not calling Hundley’s death a drowning as other factors, such as health, may have contributed to the cause of death.

Kosciusko County’s Dive Team helped Indiana Conservation officers Wednesday. Indiana Conservation Officers would like to remind everyone to wear a U.S. Coast Guard approved life jacket when in or around the water this summer.
