Detectives Identify Body Found at Sand Harbor

Posted: Updated:

Detectives with the Washoe County Sheriff's Office have identified the man whose body was found near the Sand Harbor boat docks on Friday, but the circumstances surrounding his death remain unclear.

Authorities say a paddleboarding class saw the body of 40-year-old Carl Strickland underwater, tangled in some ropes attached to a boat.

He was pulled to the surface and pronounced dead by first responders.

Detectives say they found evidence that indicates the victim had been working on the boat, and there does not appear to be foul play.

The exact cause of death still needs to be determined by the Washoe County Medical Examiner's Office.

Anyone with more information on the incident is asked to contact the Washoe County Sheriff's Office Detective Division at 328-3320.
