Canoeist dies in Lincoln County

Officers in Lincoln County say a canoeist from Auburndale whose body was found in a lake over the weekend had been trying to swim to shore while a friend remained with the overturned boat.

It happened Friday night on Long Lake.

Deputies say the body of 29-year-old Mark Linzmeier of Auburndale was found in about 7 feet of water early Saturday morning.

A warden says Linzmeier was paddling back to a cabin with a friend when the canoe flipped over.
