The body pulled from the shore of the St. Croix River in Lakeland has been identified as 54-year-old Donald D. Marklowitz Jr. of Baldwin, Wis.

The Pioneer Press report Marklowitz was reported missing by his sister, Shelly Weyers, who lives in Hudson, on April 16.

Two teenagers that were cleaning a beach area in the 900 block of Quentin Avenue spotted the man's body Tuesday morning.

Weyers said her brother was forced to move out of a home that belonged to his mother, who had died in February. Marklowitz showed up at Weyers' home on April 1, left and never returned. According to the police report, Weyers said her brother may have been suicidal.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office said the exact cause of death is still under investigation. They are not seeking any suspects and say there is no threat to the pubic.
