Dodge County Authorities Investigating The Death Of A Neosho Man

(Neosho) The death of a Neosho man is being investigated by Dodge County authorities. Around 3:21pm Tuesday, the sheriff’s office responded to a report of an individual who had been located laying in the Rubicon River, just west of Highway 67. First responders were able to locate the 29-year-old who was deceased.

Law enforcement and the Medical Examiner’s Office are currently working to establish a cause of death and are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident. Sheriff Dale Schmidt says while no foul play is suspected, it is important to gather all facts before making any finding of the cause of death.

Schmidt does add to use caution if you are heading out on the ice. The sheriff says while the ice may seem sturdy in some locations, it may break easily in others. He says using the buddy system when going out is always a good idea, as well as, wearing a flotation device and taking other safety precautions.
