Man's body recovered from Village Creek identified
The body of the 20-year-old male who was recovered from Village Creek Thursday has been identified.
The victim was identified as 20-year-old Nicholas Lee White of Beaumont, Chief Deputy Kenny Davenport said.
White was swimming with his brother and some friends, and according to his brother they swam across the creek a couple of times.
