DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — The body of a 30-year-old Dubuque man has been recovered from the Mississippi River.
The Dubuque County sheriff’s office says park patrol officers found James Hopkins’ body on Monday about four to five miles south of Massey Marina south of Dubuque. An autopsy is pending.
Hopkins was last seen around 3:30 a.m. Saturday, fishing from shore. He’d been camping with relatives at Massey Marina Park.
The sheriff’s office says family members reported Hopkins had been drinking and that his clothes were found near his fishing spot.
