Authorities are investigating the discovery of a body in a Kenosha lake Saturday.

The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department received a call at about 1:15 p.m. after an individual discovered a deceased man along the Lily Lake shoreline in the Town of Wheatland.

Officials believe the victim is 49-year-old Richard L. Warnke Sr., a man who was listed as missing/endangered earlier this week after an incident at his home in which deputies responded to a domestic dispute.

A positive identification is pending further tests of the body.
