Man found dead on Lake Kapowsin identified

A fisherman found dead on Lake Kapowsin has been identified as 31-year-old Eric Parker of Orting, the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office said.

He died from accidental drowning, the office said Monday.

Boaters found Parker face-down in the water Friday, still in his float tube.

Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said investigators think he may have gotten tangled in the apparatus he was using to fish.
