Blue - Tempe Town Lake Bridge

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Police have identified a man whose body was recovered from Tempe Town Lake last weekend.

Tempe police said Tuesday that the circumstances surrounding 35-year-old Aaron Lee Yazzi running into the lake still are not known.

Police had responded to the man-made lake after receiving a call about a man seen running into the water around 4 p.m. Friday and not resurfacing.

The search was called off hours later due to a lack of visibility and incoming storms.

A Tempe Fire Medical Rescue Dive team recovered the body Saturday morning.

Police didn’t have a hometown for Yazzi, but said he was believed to have lived on the Navajo Nation.
