August 27, 2019

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Lewis and Clark County officials say an autopsy was planned to determine the cause of death of a Helena man whose body was found in Canyon Ferry Reservoir over the weekend.

Sheriff and Coroner Leo Dutton says there is evidence to suggest the death of 57-year-old Murray Fladeland was accidental, but nothing has been ruled out.

A fisherman in a canoe found Fladeland’s body on Sunday at the reservoir east of Helena.

Dutton says Fladeland’s car was parked at a campground where he left camping and fishing gear.
