Body of Boater Identified

We have a name now on the Wilmington man whose body was recovered from the Des Plaines River Tuesday.  47 year old Baldur Kirsch Jr. disappear while boating Sunday evening.  Initial reports said he had jumped into the river, but the Grundy County coroner’s office says there are conflicting details about how Kirsch actually ended up in the water.  The official cause of death is drowning.  The death remains under investigation.  His body was found just before nine Tuesday morning about a mile and a half west of Harborside Marina in Wilmington.
