Officials are speculating whether the body is the same person who fell from a boat last summer.

Rowe stated that the body found was a white male dressed in jeans, a black T-shirt, hiking boots and wearing a watch.

Law enforcement officials from the Indiana towns of Portage and Beverly Shores are further examining what happened.
