HAMMOND, Wis. (WSAU) -- Western Wisconsin officials are trying to figure out why a Baldwin woman was found dead in a St. Croix County lake.
Sheriff’s deputies were called early Sunday morning to the Town of Hammond to investigate a car crash. The wrecked car was unoccupied. A search by deputies, The Department of Natural Resources, United Fire and Rescue, and Baldwin EMS later found 38-year-old Kristelle Marie Wolle’s body floating in Pine Lake. They are not sure of how or why she went from the crash to the lake.
Wolle’s body has been taken to the Ramsey County Minnesota Medical Examiner’s office for an autopsy. The crash and death remain under investigation.
