Foul Play? Albert Lea Family Looking For More Answers
An Albert Lea family is still looking for answers after their son was found by a fisherman in a channel this past September. Nicholas Ramirez's family has posted flyers seeking that information as to what lead to Nicholas disappearing in June alive and being found in September in the channel that separates Fountain and Albert Lea Lake.
The flyer, which is also on social media, caught the attention of KIMT-TV and they talked to the Albert Lea Police Department about the flyer and Nicholas Ramirez's death.
Albert Lea's Deputy Chief of Police Darren Hanson told KIMT-TV "We have no evidence that there is any foul play involved...The autopsy confirmed that. We know we don't have all the answers but what we do know is there are no signs of foul play or anything to continue the investigation. If new information does show up we are going to investigate it because we want to help the family."
The flyer is asking for any information about Nick or the information leading up to his death to contact Albert Lea police, as to them Nick's death doesn't make any sense.
According to the Minnesota DNR in 2019, there were 23 non-boating drownings in Minnesota.
