Body Discovered at Anoka County Golf Course

A body was discovered Friday at Ham Lake Golf Course in Anoka County.

The body was found frozen around 1 p.m. in a pond about two feet deep by a Majestic Oaks Golf Course groundskeeper.

According to The Pioneer Press, authorities worked for several hours throughout the night to free the body from the ice.

"The body appeared to have been in the water for several months, at least since before the first November freeze,"
Lt. Paul Sommer of the Anoka County Sheriff's Office said in an interview with The Star Tribune.

Foul play has also been suspected by Anoka County officials.

A wallet was found on the victim but authorities have refused to release that information until a proper autopsy has been conducted.

The victim appears to be male based on it's clothing.
