One of the newest stadiums in the NFL has apparently turned up a dead body.
When they arrived on the scene, dive teams searched the lake for hours, finding the body of a 45-year-old man.

In a statement from Inglewood Mayor James Butts, the motive for jumping in the lake is unknown but according to the surveying footage, the victim seemed to not know how to swim.
“This is someone that made a conscious decision to trespass onto the property, get into the lake and he ended up having some distress and difficulty,” Butts said. “So I don’t think there’s anything SoFi could’ve done to prevent this.”
The lake in question is just south of the stadium spanning 15 feet deep and holding 11 million gallons of water. Its apparent purpose is to capture rainwater to help the plants that surround the stadium.
