A Kansas City, Kansas man drowned at a private lake in Linn County Wednesday.
Fifty-five-year-old Melvin Eugene Stierwalt’s body was found early Wednesday afternoon at Tanglewood Lake. He’d jumpted off a swimming platform early Wednesday morning and his companions couldn’t find him and called the Linn County Sheriff. Authorities searched for awhile, but then waited until daylight. A Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism patrol boat was used to scan the water and game wardens found Stierwalt.
An investigation into the drowning continues.
