Man’s body recovered from Juneau County river

MAUSTON, Wis. — Juneau County authorities recovered a man’s body from an area river Sunday afternoon after a caller reported seeing what they believed was a human body.

Deputies with the Juneau County Sheriff’s Office were first notified around 12:15 p.m. Sunday; crews responded to the scene less than 10 minutes later to search the area near a boat landing located on 19th Avenue at County Highway N.

Officials did not immediately specify that the man’s body was found in the Lemonweir River, but the intersection referenced in a news release is in the same area.

After searching the water, deputies found the man’s body partially submerged and lodged in trees in the water. Authorities identified the man as 55-year-old Glen Erickson from New Lisbon.

The Juneau County Sheriff’s Office did not share any information about the circumstances surrounding Erickson’s death.

The incident was still under investigation as of late Monday morning.
