The Austin Police Department is asking the public for help as it continues its investigation after a body was found in Shoal Creek on Dec. 7.

Police say at around 8:30 a.m. a witness found an Austin police officer to report seeing a body in Shoal Creek. Crews responded to the bridge intersecting the 800 block of West 6th Street where a man was found dead.

The man has been identified as 48-year-old Randy Alan Lexvold. Lexvold was in town to watch his daughter's swim meet at the University of Texas. UT officials say the meet was not a UT Athletics event and didn't involve a UT student.

  • Blue eyes
  • Tattoo on right shoulder
  • Last seen wearing a black jacket, black Pink Floyd t-shirt, Gap 1969 jeans and blue Merrill trail shoes

The Travis County Medical Examiner is still working to determine the cause of death.
