The Hennepin County medical examiner on Saturday released the identity of a man found dead in Lake Minnetonka earlier this week.
The man was identified as David Charles Carlson, a 65-year-old doctor from Blaine.
Crews began to search the lake after an abandoned sailboat was found Wednesday afternoon.
Deputies found and recovered Carlson’s body Thursday afternoon from Smith Bay just off Orono, a city bordering the north side of the lake. According to the medical examiner’s office, Carlson’s official time of death was 2:30 p.m. Thursday.
The medical examiner and Hennepin County Sheriff’s Water Patrol continue to investigate the cause of his death.
