(Lancaster County, NE) -- The investigation into the 'suspicious' death of Carly Schaaf continues.
Schaaf's body was found near Pawnee Lake last week after being reported missing on May 19th. The day Schaaf's body was found, Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner said deputies had discovered the 23 year old's body covered up in an overgrown area on the Southwest side of the lake. He did not say how long they believed Schaaf's body had been there
On Monday, the Lincoln Police Department announced that during their investigation into Shaaf's disappearance, investigators obtained information that led to a search of the lake area, where LPD officers located Shaaf's body. LPD says since Pawnee Lake is within the jurisdiction of the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, LSO investigators were called to investigate and process the scene.
An autopsy was conducted last week, but the manner and cause of death are still unknown at this time, pending toxicology reports which could take several weeks. The investigation is ongoing.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Carly's family pay for funeral services.
