BELL COUNTY, Texas (KWTX) Authorities Tuesday identified a man whom a fisherman found dead of a gunshot wound Saturday morning at Lake Belton as Carl Christian Bolle, 59, of Killeen.

Bolle, who suffered a gunshot wound to the head, was pronounced dead at 8:25 a.m. Saturday by Justice of the Peace Ted Duffield.

A preliminary autopsy report says the death appears to have been a suicide, the Bell County Sheriff’s Department said in a press release Tuesday.

The results of toxicology tests are pending, authorities said.

Deputies responded at around 8 a.m. Saturday to Sparta Valley Park after a fisherman reported he found a body in the water.
