CANYON LAKE, Calif. — Authorities who are continuing to investigate the suspicious death of a man whose naked and lifeless body was pulled from Canyon Lake earlier this month, have asked for the public’s help in tracking the man’s movements and whereabouts in the days leading to the Sunday, March 14th discovery of his body.
The victim has since been identified as Jason Eilola-Coye, a 19-year-old from the City of Murrieta. His body was found by a fisherman in a fishing float in the area of Vacation Drive and Old Wrangler Road, along the lake’s northernmost end, officials previously reported.
LEADING THE RCNS HEADLINES:
After the victim’s unclothed body was recovered from the lake, Canyon Lake Insider reported that a deputy at the scene said the body appeared to have been in the lake for “a couple of days.” A subsequent coroner’s release indicated the actual date and time of his death were unknown and pending further investigation.
