Twin Cities Man's Body Found In Rainy River

BAUDETTE, Minn. (AP) — Authorities in northern Minnesota say the body of a Twin Cities CEO has been recovered from the Rainy River.

The Lake of the Woods County sheriff's office responded to a 911 call late Monday morning about a body floating in the river a mile east of Baudette. Authorities recovered 52-year-old John Martin Stiglich of Shoreview. He was taken to LakeWood Health Center in Baudette, where he was pronounced dead.

A company official says Stiglich was CEO of St. Paul-based Cirdan Health Systems and Consulting, a health care consulting and information systems firm. In a statement, Stiglich's family said he was spending the weekend at the family's cabin on Rainy River with friends when the accident happened.

An autopsy is planned. The investigation continues.
