Lee County Man's Body Found After Weekend Accident

By  | 

The search for a missing Lee County man has come to a sad ending after a state dive team found his body in a pond.

Authorities believe Lawrence Roberson, 34, of Lexington had an accident sometime Sunday. They say Roberson was northbound on FM 2440, but ran through the intersection of Highway 21, crashing through a fence and into a pond.

Roberson's truck was recovered Sunday, but his body was not found. A DPS dive team returned Tuesday and continued their search, eventually discovering Roberson's body.

An autopsy has been ordered.
