A New Kensington man who did not resurface after he went under the water during a weekend fishing trip at Moraine State Park was found dead Monday evening.
Park manager Dan Bickel said he found 42-year-old Matthew Parys in a 9-foot-deep section of Lake Arthur, about 50 yards away from a boat launching dock near Route 528.
The state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources said Mr. Parys was on a boating trip with three other people when he went missing about midnight Sunday. Witnesses told park rangers that as their pontoon boat was approaching a dock they believe he either jumped or fell into Lake Arthur near Route 528.
