Alcohol Cited As Factor in Minnesota Man’s Drowning
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A medical examiner says alcohol was a factor in the death of a Monticello man who went missing after a wedding reception in Otsego.
Twenty-three-year-old Joe Brunn had been heading for a hotel that night when he went missing. After days of searching, a volunteer found his body in the Mississippi River in Otsego last week, about a mile away from that hotel.
On Monday, the Anoka County Medical Examiner said that Brunn's death was an apparent drowning, and that alcohol intoxication was a "significant condition."
