KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The man found dead in Spring Valley Lake over the weekend has been identified as 27-year-old Jason Kyle Bassett of Kalamazoo. An autopsy revealed no signs of criminal activity in his death.
A man out for a walk in Spring Valley Park spotted what appeared to be a body with a rope around its neck Sunday morning.

They found a man's body submerged in the water, under the ice, and the Kalamazoo County Dive Team quickly assisted in recovering the body.
