1 Dead after St. Croix River Anglers Argue
Authorities are searching for three men after an argument on opposite banks of the St. Croix River led to a fatal stabbing at Interstate Park in Wisconsin.
The Polk County sheriff’s office identified the stabbing victim as 34-year-old Peter Kelly of St. Croix Falls.
The dispute began about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, when Kelly and another man who were fishing on the Minnesota side of the river began arguing with three men on the Wisconsin side. The sheriff’s office says the argument escalated until Kelly went to the Wisconsin side and was stabbed by one of the three men, who then fled.
