Dunn County (Press Release) - On Thursday, May 3, at 11:47 p.m. the Dunn County 911 center received a report of a male subject who could not be located in the Town of Tiffany.
Deputies from the Dunn County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to that location and shortly after other agencies were requested to assist in the search.
It was reported that Clifford William Frederick of West St. Paul had left to go turkey hunting in the Town of Tiffany at about 4 a.m. He was going to be hunting on property belonging to a family member.
On Thursday evening his family had not heard from him and could not make contact with him. They decided to drive to the Town of Tiffany to check on him. When they arrived they could not locate him at a shed and camper that were on the property. They then called the dispatch center and sheriff's office for assistance.
During the next couple of hours more assistance was called to assist in the search for Mr. Frederick. Since he was hunting in a large wooded area, several family members and friends helped several first responder agencies in the search.
On Friday morning at 7 a.m. Mr. Frederick's body was located in the area where he regularly hunts near the Town of Tiffany and Town of Hay River line. His body was found under a large tree top that apparently broke off high in the tree and fell directly onto him.
The Dunn County Medical Examiners Office was called to the scene to do their investigation and will determine an official cause of death.
Assisting in the search: Boyceville Fire and Ambulance Services, Dunn County First Responders, MABAS Division 117 (Dunn County Area), Glenwood City Fire Department, Sand Creek Fire Department, Colfax Fire and EMS Services, MABAS Division 126 (Eau Claire Area), Life Link Helicopter Ambulance Service, Ridgeland Fire Department, Menomonie Fire Department, Boyceville Snow Jammer's Snowmobile Club, Wisconsin DNR, Retired Firefighter Feeney, Law Enforcement Chaplin and Dunn County Medical Examiner's Office.
Also a special thank you to the Boyceville Cenex for providing food and beverages and the Dunn County Red Cross for making support plans for the day.
