Body Pulled From Columbus Canal
COLUMBUS (AP) - The body of a Silver Creek man has been pulled from a canal in Columbus. Platte County Sheriff Jon Zavadil says Ronald Urkoski, 69, was found floating near the Loup Power Canal/Lake Babcock inlet on Wednesday afternoon. He says Urkoski had been fishing in the area 30 to 45 minutes before he was found dead. No foul play is suspected, and an autopsy has not been ordered. The sheriff says Urkoski may have slipped into the canal or suffered a heart attack and fell into the water.
