Colburn man drowns in pond

CREATED May. 3, 2012

COLBURN, Wis. (AP) -- A Boyd man who planned to go fishing with his dog has been found dead in a Chippewa County pond.
  

The Chippewa Herald reports (http://bit.ly/JQq6LY ) that 76-year-old Wayne M. Duce was found dead in the pond in Colburn about 7 p.m. Wednesday.
  

Chippewa County Undersheriff Gene Gutsch says Duce had loaded a canoe with minnows and equipment. Gutsch says it was unclear whether Duce ever got in the canoe, and he may have had a medical issue.
  

A nearby homeowner saw Duce's dog and went to the pond, where Duce was found.
  

Gutsch says authorities are waiting for autopsy results to determine the cause of death.
