Dead teen found in Prospect Park Lake

Police pulled the body of a dead teenager from Prospect Park Lake on the evening of Jan. 3.

Authorities found the 19-year-old man in the lake at around 6:50 pm, a police spokesman said.

Emergency responders pronounced him dead at the scene, and there were no apparent signs of trauma to the body, according to a report.

A department spokesman said he didn’t know where exactly in the large lake the body was found, but it was near “a gazebo.”

Police have not yet released the identity of the teen.

Cops found another dead 19-year-old in the lake in November.
