Juan Resendiz Aguazul, of 307 N Mars Ave., Clearwater, was found by a family member this morning after he disappeared while at the lake Sunday. Aguazul was at Tower Lake on Sunday afternoon with his 32-year-old cousin, Javier Cortez, when Cortez lost sight of him, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. Aguazul, who can't swim, waded into the lake while Cortez was in the water throwing a cast net, authorities said. "Javier continued to cast his net," said Sheriff's Office Sgt. Tom Nestor. "When he turned back, after a few minutes, Juan was not there." Cortez called friends and family members to the scene and the group searched until nightfall. After Aguazul failed to come home Sunday night, family members called authorities and returned to the lake to search for him Monday morning. Around noon, one of Aguazul's family members spotted his body on the northeast side of the 4.5-acre lake that sits in an industrial park behind the Oldsmar Flea Market. It's unclear why Aguazul was not reported missing sooner. He could not swim, and alcohol may be a factor, Nestor said. An autopsy and toxicology screening will be performed. An investigation is ongoing, but deputies do not suspect foul play, Nestor said.
