Boat Involved Tech Graduate's Death May Have Been Found

Authorities in the Horseshoe Bay area believe they may have found the boat that struck and killed a Texas Tech Graduate on Memorial Day. Laura Putnam died after she was thrown out of a boat at Lake LBJ during a hit and run boating accident. She was 23. Her body was found more than a week later, three quarters of a mile from the scene of the crash.

Deputy Director of Law Enforcement, Roy Lawrence, says the boat is now in their custody. But he can not yet positively confirm this is the boat they have been looking for. He also can not release the name of the boat's owner.
