Throughout the search and discovery, the man was never identified. And the most frequently asked question(s) from you, our readers: Who was the missing man, and why has it taken so long to learn his name?
Well, according to the Middlesex District Attorney's Office, an officialidentification will not be forthcoming. "Where this was an accidental drowning we will not be releasing victim's name," a spokesperson for the DA's office said in an email.
The DA's office also stopped short of confirming that the body found was indeed the missing Lincoln man, saying, "The decedent is a 63-year-old male from Lincoln."
"While official confirmation has not yet been made, the deceased's appearance is consistent with that of the 63-year-old man who was last seen swimming in the pond early Sunday evening," the Oct. 1 press release said.
