A 26-year-old suicide victim was found under the Scott County side of the Highway 41 Minnesota River bridge on Sunday evening.

According to Det. Sgt. Phil Nawrocki, with the Scott County Sheriff’s Office, the Chaska Police Department received a call involving a missing suicidal male at 5:40 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 5. The Jordan Police Department’s K-9 unit was bought in to help with the search.

Following a search by local law enforcement agencies, the man was found. The Scott County Sheriff’s Office received the call at 10:19 p.m.

The man had apparently hung himself, but the coroner’s office is still investigating the case, Nawrocki said.

Please... A family has lost a loved one, and friends lost a dear one. These folks are grieving. If you were a part of that circle, you would not require an "update". Let the man rest.

is there any update on this story? It has been over a week now and still no obituary, funeral notice or follow up on the story. Is it because it was a suicide?

Are there any updates on this story? Do we know any more about the search and the initial report? I'm just curious why it took law enforcement officals almost 4 hours searching the river when they could have looked under the bridge at the start of the search. My first clue to search under the bridge was the fact his vehicle was parked near the bridge. Anyway, I am just curious if there is any more to the story.

They were searching several different areas and several different police departments were looking for him too. There is a lot more to the story. I know that they were going off of pings of his cell phone. But like I said there is a lot more to the story!

If you are willing to share, I would be interested in knowing more truths of the story. You can reach me privately at danielboike@hotmail.com I live right on the river and witnessed the entire search from start to end.
