Reality TV star Kevin O'Leary and his wife were sued Wednesday over an August boat crash in Canada's backwoods that killed two people and seriously injured three. Linda O'Leary is accused of being over the alcohol limit, on drugs and speeding at the helm of one of two boats in the late-night collision on Lake Joseph, Ontario.
"As part of that investigation assessing the boat we had recovered, we felt that it probably struck either another vessel or some type of structure," said Sgt. Joshua Dirth, of Marine Patrol.
Search teams were back out Sunday morning with the advantage of daylight, a helicopter and divers.
"We had some debris that was located and, as a result of that, we were able to match that up with a boat that was reported missing, also from the Bear Island area," Dirth said.
Divers found Lyon dead Sunday morning on the second boat, which was submerged in nearly 50 feet of water, officials said.
Anyone with information about the apparent collision is asked to contact Sgt. Dave Ouelltte at 603-227-2111.
