The Le Sueur County Sheriff’s Office has identified the deceased man as Alex Matthew Pettman, 49.  A press release says Pettman was a resident of Sunrise Farms, a facility located northeast of Montgomery.

According to the release, a homeowner called 911 just after 7 p.m. Wednesday to report there was someone in the pond on their property.  The sheriff’s office and Montgomery Police responded to the address on 14th St NE in Montgomery, east of Co Rd 3.
