CORSICANA, TX Texas game wardens and volunteers using sonar found the body of
23-year-old Charles Andrew "Chase" Bergfeld, of Conroe, on
Thursday, the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife said in a news
release. He had been missing since early Saturday after a boat
carrying him and nine other college students struck a submerged
object near a bridge in eastern Navarro County and sank.
The students were returning from a restaurant to a private
residence on the lake at the time of the accident.
Bergfeld is believed to have been the operator of the boat.
Navarro County Sheriff Les Cotten said previously that some of the
students had been drinking.
The investigation is ongoing.
