Dallas police are investigating after human remains surfaced on the shore of Lake Ray Hubbard Friday evening.

Investigators said it appears the skeletal remains were exposed as the ongoing drought reduced the lake levels near the Highway 66 bridge linking Rockwall and Rowlett.

The medical examiner's office will attempt to determine the victim's identity and the cause of death.

Dallas has jurisdiction over Lake Ray Hubbard, although the reservoir borders a number of other towns and cities.
