LAC DU FLAMBEAU
Tuesday afternoon Tribal Police confirmed Antonio Monserrate Roche is the man found deceased last week in Pokegama Lake.
Once the Coroner's office determines the official cause of death, the Tribal Police Department will issue an update.
"It appears no suspicious circumstances exist at this time but we will wait for the final determination by the Coroner before we announce cause of death," said LDF Tribal Police Chief Bob Brandenburg. "We are awaiting the results of toxicology tests, which are conducted as part of every autopsy."
Tribal President Joseph Wildcat, Sr. offered his condolences.
"For those who know our Tribe, we are bound together by a common culture that places extraordinary value on community," said Wildcat. "Losing this young man tears at the tightly woven fabric of our community. We mourn with the family and loved ones who survive him."
