Body found in Lake Wissota State Park


Chippewa Falls (WQOW) - A body was found in the Lake Wissota State Park Wednesday. It was found during a field trip.

According to Chippewa County Sheriff Jim Kowalczyk, the body was found by adults on the field trip and no student saw the body.

The Sheriff's Department is treating this as a suicide and has no reason to believe it's anything other than that. Kowalczyk said that the 60 year old woman recently made threats to family members that she wanted to harm herself and a pill bottle was found next to her body.

Kowalczyk says no foul play was suspected.
