The man who drowned in a St. Louis Park lake in May has been identified.
According to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, 25-year-old Malik Christopher Lee Ambers of Minneapolis died of an apparent freshwater drowning at 5:35 p.m. on May 29 in Lake Victoria in St. Louis Park.
The St. Louis Park Police Department responded to a report of a body in the lake on May 29, the Sun Sailor reported on June 1. There were no signs of foul play.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner says the manner of Ambers' death is "undetermined." No other information has been released.
The lake is north of the Texa-Tonka Shopping Center. There's a park at the lake, but it does not have a swimming beach.
As of July 5, there have been eight non-boating drownings and seven boating fatalities in Minnesota so far this year, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says. The data does not include Ambers' death.
At this time last year, there were 16 non-boating drownings and seven boating fatalities. In all of 2019, there were 35 non-boating drownings and 10 boating fatalities, the DNR's website says.
