Three people died this week in unrelated drownings at Lake Lewisville, Denton Fire Department officials confirmed.

According to DFD, rescue crews recovered a 25-year-old man from Lewisville Lake Park, on the southwest side of the lake, at 7:45 p.m. on Tuesday. On Wednesday, officials told NBC 5 that the man, identified as Wendell Ray Allgood, Jr., had died.

Crews also recovered the body of a 43-year-old woman from Lake Lewisville following a report of a drowning Tuesday afternoon, authorities say. The woman's name has not yet been released.

After a search halted Tuesday evening due to darkness, searchers continued their search Wednesday where a third victim was located by a Texas Park and Wildlife boat crew, approximately 100 yards from where they fell in. Officials are not releasing the male victim's name at this time.

A Little Elm Fire Department spokesman said firefighters and police were called at about 4:30 p.m. to a report of a possible drowning at Little Elm Park, located off West Eldorado Parkway on the northeast side of the lake.
