Green Bay man drowns in Marinette County

A Green Bay man has died after drowning near the Peshtigo River Flowage in Marinette County over the weekend.

The Marinette County Sheriff’s Department said Michael Two-Rivers Broeffle, 20, was swimming in the flowage area Saturday afternoon with three other men when he did not resurface.

The water level was lowered by the Wisconsin Public Service Dam operators as the Marinette County dive team searched for Two-Rivers Broeffle’s body.

His body was recovered just before 9 p.m. and was pronounced dead on scene by Marinette County Coronor George Smith.

Twin Bridge Rescue, the Stephenson Fire Department, and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources assisted at the scene.
