Body found in submerged truck in Chisago County lake

A man was found dead inside a submerged truck on Tuesday in the water near Chisago and Lindstrom Lake.

According to the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office, at 6:30 p.m., deputies were alerted about a pick-up truck submerged in the water near the Chisago/Lindstrom Lake public access off Stinson Avenue in Chisago City.

The sheriff’s office said a fisherman in the area noted an anomaly on his graph in approximately 10 feet of water near the public docks. The object was believed to be a vehicle.

Resources were dispatched to the area and a GMC truck was ultimately removed from the water, said the sheriff’s office.

Deputies said a deceased man was located inside the pick-up truck and the man was connected to a missing person case out of Fridley. Authorities say no foul play is suspected.

The Chisago County Sheriff’s Office, Fridley Police Department and the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office are investigating the incident.
