Lake Deaths

Authorities found the bodies of two Cushing men after receiving a report Sunday, Dec. 9, of overdue fishermen on Fish Trap Lake. The Morrison County Sheriff's Office was called at 6:32 p.m. regarding two neighbors who live on Fish Trap Lake, 5 miles north of Cushing in Scandia Valley Township. The two were together fishing Sunday night. Family members notified the sheriff's office they were unable to contact the fishermen, who were late returning home. The sheriff's office coordinated search and rescue efforts with responding units and learned a Polaris side-by-side all-terrain vehicle was missing. Responders searched the lake and located open water west of the Big Island, which is near the middle of the lake. At this location, the body of 68-year-old Wayne Vaverek of Cushing was found on the ice near the edge of water, a news release stated. Lifesaving efforts were attempted but were unsuccessful, and Vaverek was pronounced dead at the scene. After a thorough search, responding units were unable to locate the other fisherman. Search efforts were called off and resumed Monday morning. Members of the Morrison County and Stearns County dive teams located the body of 71-year-old Leonard Sanoski of Cushing inside the enclosed cab of the Polaris side-by-side ATV, the sheriff's office reported. The side-by-side ATV, which is typically designed to carry two or more people, was discovered in 40 feet of water. This incident took place on a pressure ridge, which is 200 yards long, running north to south and 75 yards wide running east to west. Pressure ridges are known to have broken or weak ice. Morrison County Sheriff Shawn Larsen stated the pressure ridge is marked with cones and authorities are reminding residents to stay away from the area.  The release stated: "The sheriff's office wants to remind everyone that the ice conditions vary throughout the lake and should not be considered 100 percent safe."

$1.8M settlement reached in Todd County inmate death

KSTP channel five tv out of the twin cities is reporting thatTodd County agreed Wednesday to pay $1.8 million to the family of a mentally ill man who killed himself in the county jail in June 2017. A civil rights lawsuit documented how jailers repeatedly ignored signs that Brett Huber, Jr., was suicidal, and that guards went so far as to falsify jail logs to make it look like they checked on the 25-year-old at the same time he hanged himself in his cell. The lawsuit accused Todd County of violating the rights of Brett Huber, Jr., and demonstrating "deliberate indifference" for his life. In the civil complaint, lawyers say jail staff observed an earlier suicide attempt by Huber and other bizarre behavior but never sought to have him evaluated by a mental health professional. A month before Huber's death, an outside nurse practitioner wrote that he would "likely benefit from a full psychiatric evaluation," but his family says that never happened. The family of Brett Huber, Jr., says jail staff also missed an opportunity to save his life as he was preparing to hang himself. The lawsuit reveals that surveillance cameras recorded him spending several minutes fashioning a noose out of bedsheets inside his cell, but no staff attempted to stop him. Jailers are also accused of logging a check of Huber's cell at the same time he hanged himself – something the lawsuit called a "complete fabrication." The Minnesota Department of Corrections has found the Todd County jail "chronically understaffed" in the past and repeatedly cited it for following the rules to keep inmates safe.
