Body of Missing Illinois Man Found in Submerged Car

DC SheriffThe Door County Sheriff’s Department has confirmed that the body recovered in a vehicle submerged in 16 feet of water in the harbor at the Washington Island Ferry Line’s Northport dock is that of an elderly Illinois man missing since mid-November. Sheriff Steve Delarwelle says the Dane County medical examiner indicated that 78 year-old Ernest Moore of Westlake, Illinois went off the pier, flipped over and settled to the bottom. The sheriff says more tests are needed to determine if the death was accidental or medical in nature. He said he hoped the information developed to date will bring closure to Moore’s family.
