Rick Tanovan, 52, of West Covina, was reportedly found dead in Pyramid Lake on Sunday, according to officials with the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office.

Detectives with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau responded to 43100 Pyramid Lake Road in Gorman to investigate the circumstances surrounding a man found dead in Pyramid Lake.

“At 11:20 a.m. (Sunday), a deputy with the Sheriff’s Department’s Parks Bureau, assigned to patrol Pyramid Lake, was flagged down by a man on a jet ski who said he had seen something suspicious in the south part of Pyramid Lake, near Chumash Island,” according to a Nixle report.

Deputies responded to investigate and found the bow of a boat sticking up out of the water.

A short distance away, deputies found a man beneath the water. Deputies pulled him from the water and immediately administered CPR. However, the deputies were unable to revive him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The man appeared to have drowned, but the cause of death has yet to be confirmed.

Deputies also received information that the victim may have been accompanied by a second man.

As a result, LASD Emergency Services Detail continued an underwater search and, with the assistance of the Los Angeles County Fire Department, the use of watercraft has also been implemented.

There are no signs of damage to the boat that was found, and no obvious signs of physical trauma to the man who was pulled from the water. Also, there is no preliminary sign of foul play, however the investigation continues.

The autopsy on Tanovan is scheduled for Tuesday, according to a representative with the Coroner’s Office. 

There is no additional information at this time.

Pyramid Lake is located about 16 miles north of Castaic.
