No foul play is suspected in Monday’s recovery of a sunken vehicle pulled out of Clear Lake.
The Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office says a fisherman recently discovered the vehicle and alerted authorities. The underwater recovery team was deployed to recover the vehicle which was submerged in about nine feet of water near a boat ramp. The vehicle was then transported to the sheriff’s office where further investigation revealed it was unoccupied and all windows were rolled up.
The Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office believe the vehicle had been underwater for several years and they are working to identify the vehicle’s last known owner. They added that there’s no reason to believe there is any foul play involved, nor does the vehicle factor into any ongoing investigation currently being conducted in the area.
