Hall County teen found dead in reservoir identified

Posted: Updated:

Authorities found the body of a Hall County teenager in a reservoir Thursday afternoon.

According to the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office, a group of teens were swimming in the county-maintained reservoir, where swimming was not allowed.

Police said they believe 15-year-old Juan Carlos Salazar became tired and went under water.

Divers looked for the teen in water believed to be 50 to 80-feet deep.

East Hall High School, where Salazar was a sophomore, will have counselors on hand Friday.

In the gym prior to the start of the regular school day, EHHS Principal Jeff Cooper had met with students who had heard overnight through social media of the tragic event.
