Officials have identified the man who was found dead at a rural Dodge County home Wednesday.

The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office announced Tuesday afternoon that 36-year-old Bradlee Gerke, of Beaver Dam, was found dead at the house at N901 Redwing Road in the town of Lebanon.

Sheriff Dale Schmidt has kept many details of the investigation quiet, including declining to say where Gerkee’s body was discovered at the Redwing Road property.

Schmidt held a news conference Friday afternoon but offered scant information, adding that investigators were waiting to see the coroner’s report on the cause of death.

In the sheriff’s department update Tuesday afternoon, information about the cause of death was not included.
