Outagamie Co. victim in ATV accidental thin ice drowning identified

by

TOWNSHIP OF CENTER, WI (WTAQ) - An 89-year-old man who drowned in a pond on his property near Appleton was identified today as Bryce Spoehr.

Outagamie County authorities said Spoehr was using an ATV to clear snow from the pond so it could be used for recreation – and the vehicle plunged through the ice.

Coroner Ruth Wulgaert has ruled the death an accident.

Sheriff’s deputies were called yesterday afternoon by family members who said they had not seen Spoehr since Wednesday.

Rescuers found his body shortly after they arrived.
