Bodies of 2 North Texas fishermen found after canoe capsizes

DALLAS (AP) — Authorities have recovered the bodies of two North Texas fishermen after their canoe capsized.

Officials say the bodies were found early Sunday morning after the fishermen’s boat started leaking and then flipped over a day earlier as they were on Cedar Creek Lake, located about 60 miles southeast of Dallas.

Texas Game Wardens identified the two victims as 19-year-old Anthony Aleman and 25-year-old Onesimo Cabriales, both from Dallas.

Investigators say three men were in the canoe when it capsized.

One of the men swam back to shore but the other two didn’t make it.

Rescue crews searched the lake on Saturday but called off the search in the evening due to high winds and rain.

Authorities say the men weren’t wearing life vests.
