WAYNESVILLE, Ohio -- Officials identified the body found at Caesar Creek State Park Monday as 63-year-old Barbara Bland of Waynesville.

According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, two people visiting Caesar Creek Lake spotted the body at about 3 p.m.

Travis Martin, an area supervisor for ODNR's watercraft division, said the body was face-down in the water.

Initial findings show no sign of foul play, but the medical examiner has not yet performed an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

This is the third death at Caesar Creek State Park since late May.

On May 24, a local high school golf coach drowned at Caesar Creek when he was boating with his daughter.

On June 20, a 22-year-old woman died at Caesar Creek when her inner tube rolled over.
