Bosque County sheriff’s officials have identified a man whose body was found floating in the water at Laguna Park near Lake Whitney on Thursday morning.

The man was identified as Christopher Scott Swearingen, 35, of Laguna Park. He was wearing jeans and a T-shirt when he was found, a spokeswoman for the Bosque County Sheriff’s Office said.

Swearingen was reportedly discovered partially submerged in a small body of water located off of Bosque County Road 1743 by bystanders who called 911.

There were no obvious signs of foul play, and Justice of the Peace Jeffrey Hightower ordered the body sent for autopsy.

Officials ask that anyone with information about the case contact Bosque County Sheriff’s Investigator Joe Brooks at 435-2363.
