Dive team recovers man's body from Tempe Town Lake
TEMPE, Ariz. - A body was pulled from Tempe Town Lake Saturday morning after a witness reported seeing a man go into the water without resurfacing.
Tempe fire crews received the call July 16 after someone said they saw the man run into the lake. After multiple diving attempts, dive teams had to end their search that night because of a lack of visibility and stormy conditions.
The man's body was recovered the following day. He has been identified as 35-year-old Aaron Lee Yazzi.
"The circumstances surrounding Yazzi running into the lake Friday are not known," police said in a statement.
Police are investigating.
Tempe Fire and Medical discovered the body Saturday morning.
