An unidentified male body was found dead in East Los Angeles College Swim Stadium’s pool, today.
The body had been there for some time said Sergeant Walker, of ELAC’s Sherriff’s station.
The coroner picked up the body at some point in between 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
Women’s swim coach Erik Matheson was called and told the pool was shut down. He said he didn’t know the body’s identity, but he said that high schools had recently used the pool.
He said that Schurr High School was supposed to have practice in the morning. It is not known yet who discovered the body.
Matheson also said that they were supposed to practice but they will probably have to wait until Tuesday.
“They have to have it cleared by the health department,” Matheson said. The health department will “super chlorinate it.”
