The body of a second boating accident victim has been recovered within a search area at Lake Havasu. Mohave County Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Trish Carter said the body of Jennifer Renee Martin, 31, Los Angeles was recovered at about 7:15 a.m. Tuesday.
Carter said Martin and a number of others were ejected when a 35 foot, twin engine Nordic boat flipped near Body Beach at about 8:00 p.m. Saturday, June 10. Another passenger in the boat, Bruce Buchanan, 51, Redondo Beach, died at Havasu Regional Medical Center after he was pulled from the water in an unresponsive condition following the wreck.
Sonar equipment was used to located Martin’s body. Carter said dive team members recovered the body from a depth of 43 feet of water.
The sheriff’s office has not yet identified the operator of the boat but has said that alcohol is a factor suspected in an ongoing investigation.
