Frozen Body Found On Ham Lake Golf Course

A body found encased in ice on a Ham Lake golf course remains unidentified, according to the Associated Press.

Friday, groundskeepers at Majestic Oaks Golf Course discovered the body frozen in around 2 feet of water. Authorities worked throughout the day, using industrial steamers from the Anoka County Highway Department to free it from the ice.

The body appears to have been in the water since before the firs November freeze, Lt. Paul Sommer of the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office told the Star Tribune.

Investigators found a wallet on the body but will not identify it until an autopsy is conducted. Authorities say it can take two days for the body to thaw enough to allow an autopsy to be conducted.

Although the head and face were badly damaged, officials believe the body is a man’s based on the type of clothing.
