One in the same story
Back in July they discovered a human leg in a brush pile at West Newton.
I suppose this new discovery is related.

WABASHA, Minn. (KMSP) - The Wabasha County Sheriff hopes human remains found in the Mississippi River Saturday belong to a boater who went missing in April.

The Wabasha County Sheriff’s Office responded to a caller who reported the visible remains around 4:30 p.m. The Sheriff's Office located the remains about 100 feet
from the shore in Wabasha, Minnesota on a patch of dry land.

The remains consisted of a torso with one leg attached to it with a boot.

Sheriff Rodney Bartsh confirmed the remains were found Saturday and he said he hopes they belong to a boater who went missing on the Mississippi River in April named David Sheridan.

The remains will now go to the Medical Examiner’s office. There, officials will look to officially identify the remains and see if they belong to Sheridan.

Authorities have determined that yes, it is one in the same individual. What is so interesting is that the parts were able to travel so far plus having to navigate the damn in Elba. What other secrets does the old Miss hold? How many bodies wearing cement shoes rest below the many bridges?

Alma, Elba, at my age, they're all the same to me.

Hey Ron props on you keeping this Rochesteroutdoors.com alive. Hopefully we get some reports in this fall? I have a bunch of days off to burn up and hope to post anything relevant mostly in pool 4.

Can I drill a hole yet?

Yes here it is, a couple of weeks away from small game and archery deer season opener. Plus fall fishing can be very rewarding.
Hopefully there will be some reports or discussion here.
I'm not sure why participation has dwindled on this site when at a time it was popular.

RE: One in the same story
With all this rain in Wisconsin and the resultant high water the old river is starting to come up in a few areas below Alma. Now with the forecast for the next few days being what it is with lots of rain on already soggy ground to the west of Rochester we just might see the old river do another high water episode to help screw up this fall's fishing. What's the old saying? "When it rains it pours", much like it just got thru doing.

Ditto Ron.

The remains found in a couple places along the big river have been identified as those of the missing sailboater so that will close this chapter. RIP.
