PRINCETON, Wis. (WBAY) - The Green Lake County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a death in the Fox River in Princeton.

The sheriff’s office was asked to check on a person’s welfare at a house along the river shortly before 7 a.m. Thursday. The house was empty, but deputies found tracks on the frozen river which led to some broken ice and open water.

The sheriff office’s drone unit responded, and authorities found a body shortly after Princeton Fire/Rescue and EMS put an underwater camera in the river.

The person has not been publicly identified, which is routine to allow family members to be notified first.
