COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) - The body found earlier this month in Lake Coeur d’Alene has been identified as the Idaho man who went missing during a mid-February outing on the lake, authorities said.

Kootenai County Coroner Warren Keene on Wednesday confirmed the identity of the body as Larry Isenberg, the Coeur d’Alene Press reported .

Isenberg, 68, was reported missing on February 13 by his wife, Lori Isenberg. She told authorities that her husband fell from their boat at Powderhorn Bay near Harrison as he attempted to fix the boat’s electric trolling motor.

Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office personnel discovered the body on March 1 near Sun-Up Bay, about 3 miles (5 kilometers) west of Powderhorn Bay.

Lori Isenberg told authorities the couple launched the boat from Sun-Up Bay that morning to watch the sun rise.



An autopsy on the body is still pending, authorities said. The sheriff’s office is investigating the death.

Lori Isenberg was arrested late last month and charged with felony grand theft. She is accused of embezzling money while working for the North Idaho Housing Coalition. She has pleaded not guilty.
