SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) — Sheriff’s deputies are investigating the death of a man found face down in Lake Tahoe about 50 feet from the shoreline.

South Lake Tahoe police said Tuesday the incident appears to be unrelated to the Caldor wildfire burning south of Lake Tahoe.

They said passersby found the victim Monday and reported the incident to authorities.
