Kenosha Man Dead After Drowning in Chain o’ Lakes

(Lake Villa, IL) A Kenosha man is dead after drowning in the Chain over the weekend. Lake County Sheriff’s officials say the 25-year-old had jumped into a channel just north of Petite Lake after reportedly drinking heavily at a birthday party. The man was able to get to shore, and a relative helped put him to bed, but a short time later, the man jumped into the water again, attempting to swim across the channel, but disappeared under the water. His body was located around 6:30 on Sunday morning. An autopsy is being scheduled.
