ACT Policing’s Water Operations this morning (Sunday, October 23) recovered the body of a man from Lake Burley Griffin near the Commonwealth Avenue Bridge.
A post mortem will be conducted although at this time, there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the man’s death. A report is being prepared for the Coroner.
Our information is the deceased had been drinking heavily at ANU’s Octoberfest before going for an ill advised swim.
UPDATE: The Canberra Times are saying it was one William Boyle who appears to have been a very popular guy.
