Drowning suspected in lake near Stanley

STANLEY – A body was located in Otter Lake, north of Stanley, on Tuesday afternoon, said Chippewa County Sheriff Jim Kowalczyk.

Boaters saw an unoccupied pontoon boat on the lake, and later saw the body of a deceased person in the water, Kowalczyk said.

“They found him near the pontoon,” he said. “They couldn’t get him out of the water.”

The Department of Natural Resources responded to the scene and pulled the body from the lake. The DNR will likely handle the investigation, Kowalczyk said.

“We don’t have any ideas who he is,” he said.
