ONTONAGON, MI-- Officials have released the name of a Montana man who drowned in Lake Superior in the Western U.P.
The Ontonagon County Sheriff’s Department says the body of William Jaksha, 54, of Billings was found Tuesday about 20 yards from shore near Ontonagon. He had apparently been seen walking along the beach earlier in the day.
The incident remains under investigation, but officials say alcohol was likely a factor in Jaksha’s death.
