Body of Missing Anoka Man Found in Golf Pond

Anoka County authorities say that the body of a man who has been missing for one month was discovered dead Saturday in a golf course pond.

According to the Pioneer Press, the sheriff’s office said the body of Jelani Brinson, 24, was discovered at the Greenhaven Golf Course in Anoka after an employee reportedly saw a body floating in the course pond.

Brinson was last seen April 17 after leaving a friend’s home. Friends and family who had been looking for him had found his shoes along a railroad track nearby.

Police have not said whether there were any signs of foul play involved in Brinson’s death and that the cause of death is currently under investigation.

A brief dog hunt for Brinson that ended at a bar in Ramsey County turned up no evidence.

Ryan Wagner, who is an employee of the Greenhaven Golf Course, said that the pond is located between the 10th and 11th holes. Nine holes of the course in Anoka had been closed for most of the afternoon. (Star Tribune)
