Body found at Grapevine Lake dam identified

A man whose body was found on the rocky slope of the dam at Grapevine Lake has been identified, but the cause of his death is still undetermined, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office.

The body of Ivan Lyashenko, 38, of Lewisville was found Friday afternoon on the slope at the south end of the dam.

He did not appear to have gone into the water, said Sgt. Robert Eberling, a police spokesman.

He was found about 40 feet from the water’s edge, according to a news release.

A passing boater discovered the body on the east side of the lake near Fairway Drive south of Rockledge Park, Eberling said.

Lyashenko’s vehicle was located on the north side of the dam.

No obvious signs of foul play were found, the release said.

The body was taken to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office for an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death.
