The Portage Co. Sheriff’s Office on Thursday released the identity of a man they say died under suspicious circumstances in Almond.
The body of Sylvester M. Kawlewski, 92 of Almond, was discovered by relative Wednesday afternoon at his home on County Highway BB.
In a news release from Sheriff Mike Lukas, investigators have collected a “large amount of potential evidence” and are following several leads. The nature of Kawlewski’s death was not released, but Lukas did say there was no danger to the public.
The Wisconsin Dept. of Justice, State Patrol and the Portage County Coroner’s Office are all assisting with the investigation.
An autopsy is scheduled to be performed on Thursday.
