Another Body Discovered in a Lauderdale Lakes Canal

For the second time in two days a body has been discovered floating in a canal in Lauderdale Lakes.

Broward Sheriff's Office investigators said a man's body was found in the canal in the area of Northwest 35th Terrace near 26th Street Tuesday. His identity hasn't been released and the incident remains under investigation.

On Monday, a man's body was discovered in a canal near the 3900 block of Northwest 31st Terrace, about 10 blocks away from where the other body was found. Officials believe that body is related to Saturday's report of a car in the canal. BSO divers had responded but no occupants were found.

Investigators are working to identify the man and determine how the car ended up in the canal.

Officials said the body found Tuesday does not appear to be related to the car that went into the canal.
