It was a tough holiday weekend in western Montana.
The body found Friday in the woods near Superior did indeed turn out to be that of Kelly Dube-Woodard, missing since last Tuesday:
The alert was related to an alleged aggravated assault and kidnapping, the Elko Daily Free Press reported. The Nevada Highway Patrol had been notified that Dube-Woodard had at some point called police to say she was being or had been attacked.
A Wisconsin man died after his raft overturned in the Lochsa:
Randy A. Eroen, of Sun Prairie, Wisc., died Saturday afternoon after the raft he was in hit a rapid and all four occupants fell into the Lochsa.
Two of the rafters were able to get back into the raft and one was able to swim to shore, according to a news release Tuesday from Idaho County Sheriff Doug Giddings.
One of two kayakers who were accompanying the group threw a life rope to Eroen, but he was unable to reach it as he was swept downriver by the current.
And yesterday, a 94-year-old Trego man died in a crash in northern Utah that also injured four of his family members:
A Utah Highway Patrol spokesman says Leroy M. Grace, of Trego, Mont., died at a hospital after the roof of a Jeep Cherokee collapsed in the wreck about 5 p.m. Monday on State Road 30 near Beaver Dam in Box Elder County.
Highway patrol spokesman Joe Dougherty tells the Salt Lake Tribune the others – including a 7-year-old girl – were hospitalized with less serious injuries.
