Body found confirmed to be Neenah man

The body recovered by the Door County Sheriff’s Department on Wednesday afternoon has been identified as the Neenah man who went missing in February. Eric Richter, 57, was visiting Cave Point taking pictures on February 10th when he went missing. The Door County Sheriff’s Department, Department of Natural Resources, and numerous other agencies participated in search efforts that lasted over six weeks.  After being notified Wednesday afternoon about a possible body floating in Lake Michigan, members of six different agencies battled rough waters and slippery conditions to bring Richter in from the water. Chief Deputy Pat McCarty says the cause and manner of Richter’s death will be determined by the Dane County Medical Examiner in the coming months.
