July 30, 2018

Authorities say they recovered a body from Lake Minnetonka Monday morning.

Paramedics, deputies from the Hennepin County Sheriffs Office and Wayzata police and firefighters were called to an area near the 500 block of Harrington Road just after 6 a.m., said Jon Collins, a sheriffs office spokesman.

First responders found a man in the lake when they arrived.

It was not immediately known why the body was in the lake, but foul play is not suspected, Collins said.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiners Office will identify the man and determine his official cause of death.
