Authorities in western Wisconsin are identifying a man found dead Tuesday on Otter Lake in Chippewa County.  

The D-N-R says 83-year-old Richard Mohr of rural Holcombe was discovered floating in the water by boaters.  Witnesses told deputies they had seen him boating earlier and didn't believe he'd been in the water very long.  Conservation officers say Mohr was not wearing a life jacket.  Mohr is the victim of an apparent drowning, but the investigation is ongoing.
