WASECA — A 41-year-old Austin man was found dead Thursday after an apparent accident in a Waseca fish house.
The victim’s father discovered the man — who has not been named — shortly after noon on Clear Lake, according to a Waseca County Sheriff’s Office press release.
The sheriff’s office is still investigating; however, the death is believed to be accidental, and no foul play is suspected, the report said.
