An early morning fishing trip turned crime scene investigation in West Travis County.
Close to 7 a.m. Monday morning, fisherman Anders Meine called 911 when he saw something suspicious floating just off shore of Mary Quinlan Park.
A man was dead in the water, his car partially submerged next to him with the sunroof open.
An APD dive team and homicide investigators combed the area.
While they aren't calling the death suspicious, many on the water say the area is trickier than most.
"It is in kind of a weird spot at the end of the road here, it goes, just as you're driving down the road it just goes straight into the water, unless you know it's here then it can be really easy to just drive right in," Meine said.
That's exactly what happened in 2009 a woman accidentally drove straight into the water and drowned. Park Rangers then marked the area with reflectors and a blinking warning light.
"I didn't really know that it was right here, and I remember coming down there and coming kind of quick,” Meine said. “They put the lights up and that helps."
Although the nature of this most recent death is still under investigation, officials say they'll re-evaluate safety procedures in the area.
Austin police say they are waiting for the autopsy results before concluding the investigation.
