Ice Fishing Deaths Near Henry

Posted by wlpo on January 9, 2013

Two area men are dead after drowning while ice fishing.

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office got a call last night from family members concerned that 68-year old Gary Hyatt of Lacon and 62-year old Thomas Marchesi of Toluca hadn’t come home from ice fishing.  Deputies went out to a farm pond outside Henry and found a truck and hole in the ice but no fisherman.  Firefighters arrived and found Hyatt and Marchesi dead under the ice.

Their deaths are considered accidental drownings.
