Body Pulled From Brainerd Area Lake

Brainerd police say a body recovered from a lake is that of a missing 23-year-old man.

They pulled the body of Brandon Rich from Boom Lake in a park in Brainerd on Saturday night.

The body was submerged in just over 6 feet of water about 100 feet from shore.

Rich, a missing vulnerable adult, was last seen Wednesday night, and investigators believe he may have left his home to go downtown.

Police were called to the lake after Rich’s wet clothing was found near a park building.
