Remains found of Parker Kruse, 22-year-old thrown overboard in Wisconsin River last summer
SPRING GREEN, Wis. — The Grant County Sheriff’s Office says they have found the remains of Parker Kruse, who had been missing since July 3rd of 2021.
Today, June 25, at 3:21 pm, the Grant County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a group of vacationers canoeing the Wisconsin River.
They have been canoeing the river for several years and were familiar with the Parker Kruse incident that took place on the river near Spring Green.
While setting up for camp for the night, they believed they had possibly discovered the remains of Parker just onto a sand bar island (Steamboat Island) about 1/4 mile north/east of the Blue River Bridge. Blue River Fire Department was dispatched and assisted the Sheriff’s Office and Coroner’s Office in getting to the island.
The remains were transported back to shore, where it was determined by the family members on scene, that the remains located were those of Parker.
The Sheriff’s Office was assisted on scene by Blue River Fire and EMS, Wisconsin DNR, as well as the Grant County Coroner’s Office.
