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."

EAGLE RIVER - A state department will look to an Eagle River company as an example for growth and innovation. Eagle Waste and Recycling serves 74 communities across northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula.

About two weeks ago, the company finished several equipment upgrades and even expanded some of its facility to keep up with demand. 

In a couple weeks, the Wisconsin Council on Recycling will make a stop in Eagle River for a tour and to learn about what makes the business so successful.

"This is the only one in northern Wisconsin that's doing exactly what it's doing, which is processing single stream recycling to the tune of about 150 tons a day," said Sales Manager Jim Whittinghill.

Eagle Waste and Recycling recently added a third baler and doubled the size of its intake building. Whittinghill says the company is even considering adding a second shift for workers to process even more product.

He says they look forward to the state visit.

"We think it's a pretty great thing," said Whittinghill. "We like to show off our facility and make people aware of what's here, what it's doing for the state of Wisconsin, what it's doing for northern Wisconsin."

The Wisconsin Council on Recycling plans to visit Eagle Waste Recycling on Oct. 1 at 11 a.m. The meeting is open to the public.
