Suspicious death still under investigation

The investigation into what happened to a man found dead near County Road 14 in the Lindstrom area remains ongoing.

“We are still waiting for the toxicology report to come back from the medical examiner, so the case is still under investigation,” Chisago County Sheriff Rick Duncan said this week.

It was Friday afternoon, June 28, when the sheriff’s office responded to a report of an adult male who was missing. After filing the missing person’s report, family and friends of the man began checking the area where he was last seen. A few hours later, they located the male and found that he was deceased.

The sheriff’s office responded to the location and dispatched its investigations unit as circumstances surrounding the nature of the deceased male raised suspicion. The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is assisting in the investigation.
