LAKELAND, Minn. (AP) -- Washington County authorities are investigating the discovery of a body in the St. Croix River in Lakeland.
The sheriff's office was called late Tuesday morning about a possible dead body on the shore. Deputies found the decomposed body, which apparently was in the water for a long time.
Deputies could not identify the body. The body was turned over to the Ramsey County medical examiner's office.
