Camper’s Body Pulled From Minn. Lake

GRAND MARAIS, Minn. (AP) — The body of a Wisconsin man has been pulled from a lake in Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

Cook County sheriff’s officials said Friday the body of 23-year-old Ty Sitter of Janesville, Wis., was recovered about 5:30 p.m. Thursday from 90 feet of water in Swan Lake. Sonar first detected Sitter’s body Sunday, but weather hampered recovery efforts.

Sitter had been on an annual camping trip with his father and brother when he disappeared June 9. He left the family campsite on Swan Lake to go fishing near Grand Marais. His canoe, life jacket and tackle box were found, but there was no sign of Sitter.
