The Imperial County Coroner's Office officials today released the name of the man whose body was found Saturday in the mineral hot springs pond in Niland.
The man was identified as 30-year-old Karl Daniel Weikel, who was originally from Pennsylvania, said Imperial County Supervising Deputy Coroner Sgt. Thomas Garcia.
A passerby found Weikel in the pond and called authorities. An autopsy on Weikel is scheduled Tuesday, Garcia said.
