POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A Polk County justice of the peace has released the name of the 34-year-old man who drowned in Lake Livingston Saturday night.

Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace David Johnson said the man who drowned was Larry Joe Taylor, 34, of Conroe. Johnson said the investigation into Taylor is still ongoing.

Game Warden Ryan Hall with the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department said that Taylor and a woman were on a boat on Lake Livingston when the incident occurred at about 9 p.m. Saturday.

Hall said Taylor got out of the boat to swim. At some point, the woman lost communication with Taylor and couldn’t see him because it was dark. He said the woman didn’t know how to operate the boat they had just bought.

Although authorities launched a rescue mission Saturday night, Taylor wasn’t found. His body was found when the search resumed Sunday, and Johnson pronounced him dead at the scene.

The identity of the woman who had been with Taylor Saturday has not been released.
