Second Try To Recover Body At New Melones

FBI investigators and deputies from Tuolumne and Calaveras counties have been back at the Stevenot Bridge since early this morning. They came close to recovering a body yesterday from the deep water of New Melones Lake, but a submersible lost its grip on it before it could be brought to a safe depth for divers.

The recovery effort is part of an ongoing organized crime investigation. Agent Nick Rossi says yesterday´s discovery appears to confirm the suspected connection between the lake and that case.
