Fishermen find body of Sioux Falls man in Oakwood Lake

  • 0

BRUCE | Law enforcement authorities in eastern South Dakota say two fishermen found the body of a Sioux Falls man in Oakwood Lake.

The Brookings County Sheriff's Office says the body of 73-year-old Martin Jepson was found floating in the lake around 2:30 p.m. Monday.

The sheriff's office says the men noticed an empty vehicle when they were in the process of going fishing in the public access area on the south side of Oakwood Lakes State Park. They then saw the body about 20 feet from the shoreline.

Jepson was pronounced dead at the scene after first responders were unsuccessful in their attempt to resuscitate him. The sheriff's office says foul play is not suspected, but an autopsy will be conduction to help determine the cause of death.
