Body Of Missing Kayaker Positvely Identified
PLYMOUTH (AP) - The Hennepin County medical examiner's officer has identified a body pulled from a Plymouth lake as that of a missing kayaker.
The medical examiner says 31-year-old Paul Myklebust of St. Louis Park apparently drowned. His death was ruled accidental.
Searchers found Myklebust's body Monday in Medicine Lake. Myklebust was last seen about 2 a.m. Saturday, when he left a party to go on the lake.
Myklebust and a friend got into a kayak that eventually overturned. The other person was able to get safely to shore.
The Hennepin County sheriff's office and Plymouth police are investigating.
