Body recovered from Oklahoma lake investigated as a homicide

Posted: Updated:

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Authorities in central Oklahoma say a man whose body was recovered from Lake Thunderbird is apparently a homicide victim.

The body of 32-year-old Kevin Price of Noble was pulled from the water near the southeast side of the lake around 2 p.m. Friday. Authorities were alerted after a woman reported finding his body in the lake.

Officials say his death is being investigated as a homicide and that the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is investigating.

Lt. Mike Roe with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol Marine Enforcement Division says it's unclear how long Price's body was in the water before it was discovered. Officials say he was not wearing a flotation device.

Additional details about the investigation were not immediately available.
