Authorities are investigating after two fishermen found a body in a Central Texas lake.

Bell County Sheriff Eddy Lange tells the Killeen Daily Herald ( ) that it's not yet known who the person is or how the person died. The fishermen found the body Thursday afternoon at Stillhouse Hollow Lake, located near Belton.
