HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

A drowning victim whose boat capsized on Lake Palestine has been identified by authorities Monday.

According to Texas Parks & Wildlife's Captain Mike Hanson, the body of 46-year-old Fredrick Perkins was recovered at approximately 11:53 p.m. Sunday night.

Several eyewitnesses pointed Henderson County Sheriff's Office, along with Henderson County and Smith County game wardens, to the place where they saw they saw the man fall out of the boat.

Captain Hanson said there were two people in the boat, Perkins and a woman who said that she was his girlfriend.

The woman was wearing a life jacket and was able to make it to shore, according to Hanson, but Perkins was not.

Henderson County's sonar boat was used to locate the body in 10 feet of water.

The investigation is ongoing, as officials are not sure how or if the boat began to take on water or how the man fell out of the boat.
