Growing Concerns About Lady Bird Lake In Austin, Texas


As shown above by KVUE, these are where bodies have been found in the lake over the past year. This has caused some in the Austin area to call on law enforcement to cover more of the area, as FOX 7 Austin reports.

Some are even worried that there is somebody doing this around Austin, and that law enforcement are unable to find the individual. Abdul Tabbakha, who lives around Lady Bird Lake, stated his concerns to FOX 7:

"In recent months, we have seen Austin police kind of going up and down the trail with their horses, but yeah, with this back it definitely does concern me that they are not able to find out who is doing this."

As this is a developing story, we will report more information when it become available.
