Victim Identified In Barron Co.

We now know who responders located in Red Cedar Lake.

It was on Wednesday, June 22, 2022, when the Barron County Sheriff’s Department and the WI DNR with the help of Bruce’s Legacy located and recovered the body of Mitchell Farrell, 55 of Prescott, WI. Mitchell was the operator and single occupant of the Sea-Doo boat on Red Cedar Lake when, for an unknown reason, went into the water. The Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office and the Barron County Medical Examiner will be conducting an autopsy.

A special thanks is extended by the team to Bruce’s Legacy. He is a non profit who came up for free to help and located the body in the water.  He has some very specialized equipment and has helped all over the world in searches. 

The boat is named for his brother who was a firefighter in Black Rivers Falls and died trying to locate someone.
