Coroner IDs man who drowned in Winton Lake
GREENHILLS, OH (FOX19) -
A 23-year-old Forest Park man was identified Friday as the boater who died
in an apparent drowning at Winton Lake.
Caleb Simpson's body was found after a massive search and recovery effort

releasing water to get it down. Nobody is supposed to be out on the
water," he said.
Lt. Greg Grimm, a park ranger, said this is the first time something like
this has happened in his 24 years on the job.
