Authorities have recovered additional human remains from a lake owned by a private fishing club in Lexington.

According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, more remains were found in shallow water near the shore of Lake Ellerslie Fishing Club on Sunday. A groundskeeper for the club first spotted the body Saturday and called police.

Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn said identification found in a backpack with the body indicates the remains are those of a 45-year-old white man. Ginn hopes to obtain dental records to make a positive identification. He thinks the body had been in the lake since summer.

The remains were sent to Frankfort for further examination.

Ginn said a final report could take months and the cause of death may never be known because only bones remain.
