Trinity Tragedy

The sudden disappearance of Hwanyeo Park, an elderly Coppell resident, has prompted a countywide search, which spanned the Coppell, Denton, Lewisville and Lake Cities counties. Over 300 people, as well as Lewisville’s dive team, searched for days, specifically near the Trinity River, before two kayakers found the missing body in the Trinity River and contacted the authorities.

Mr. Park’s body was found in the Sandy Lake portion of the Trinity River last Saturday and it appears that his death was the result of an accidental drowning. His grandsons, for whom he left Korea in order to spend more time with, attend Copppell schools.
