On Tuesday, April 8, 2022, the Rockford Police Department was contacted to
investigate a report of a body on the rocks near Fordham Dam. Upon arrival, officers located the
body of a deceased male laying on the rocks, submerged in the water.
After the autopsy, the Coroner’s Office deemed it a suspicious death due to the type of injuries
sustained. Today, April 15, 2022, the Altoona, Wisconsin Police Department issued the attached
press releases. The Altoona Police Department contact information is included in that release.
As with any and all investigations, further information may be provided at a later date.

On April 14, 2022, the Altoona Police Department was contacted by the Rockford, IL Police
Department regarding a body that was located. The deceased was identified as an Altoona
resident and the death was deemed suspicious.
Investigators from the Altoona Police Department, Rockford Police Department, and Wisconsin
Division of Criminal Investigation were led to a residence on St Andrews Drive in the City of
