Woman dies in Pine Lake

The body of a Baldwin woman was discovered in Pine Lake early Sunday morning.

Kristelle Marie Wolle, 38, was found deceased in the waters of Pine Lake a short time after the St. Croix County Sheriff’s Office responded to a one-vehicle crash at the intersection of 117th Avenue and 207th Street in the Town of Hammond.

St. Croix County Sheriff’s Office received the call of the accident at 5:04 am Easter Sunday, April 20. When deputies arrived at the scene they discovered an unoccupied vehicle.

An extensive search ensued that included the sheriff’s deputies, United Fire and Rescue, Baldwin EMS, a Wisconsin DNR warden, and an airplane from the New Richmond Airport.

Wolle was discovered by a Wisconsin DNR warden and was pronounced dead at the scene by the St. Croix County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Her body was transported to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office in St. Paul for an autopsy.

The incident remains under investigation.
