The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office had received a report of a submerged vehicle in Lake Delhi just north of 247th Street on Monday. The body of 23-year old Alex Salow of Delhi was discovered inside the vehicle, which was recovered by Delaware County Fire and EMS.
The Sheriff’s Office says an investigation shows that Salow and a second occupant, who has been identified (but name not released), left Smokey’s Grill on Sunday night around 7:30 to 8 pm and traveled northbound on the ice of Lake Delhi.
As part of the investigation, the Sheriff’s Office and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation are seeking the public’s help.
