Lake Minnetonka Drowning Victim Found 28 Jun 12

The body of a 20-year-old drowning victim was recovered from Lake Minnetonka Wednesday.

The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office says a dive team found the body of Kennedy Maddox shortly after 6pm in 67 feet of water, about one mile from Big Island.

Maddox was a recent graduate of Minnetonka High School. Witnesses said Maddox jumped off a boat to swim in the lake but failed to surface.

Authorities say four people, who were also on the boat, searched for him but couldn’t locate him.
