Sturgeon Bay death still under investigation

The nature of a suspicious death over two months ago in Sturgeon Bay is still undetermined, according to the Sturgeon Bay Police Department.  Captain Dan Brinkman informed this week that they have not received the report of Cordarrow Hirthe’s autopsy, crime lab or toxicology reports from the state.  Hirthe’s body was found near the Ahnapee Trail off Neenah Avenue in Sturgeon Bay on November 27th by a patrol officer.  The only detail released was that a gun was involved.  Brinkman reiterated that “the community is not in any danger” and department policy is not to comment on death investigations until the final reports are in out of respect for the family.  Social media posts show that a Facebook account called “Cordarrow Hirthe-Seeking Truth” has been established with hopes of getting additional information that eventually will give closure for the family.
