Brother of Minnesota congressman Tim Walz dies in Boundary Waters storm

Craig Walz’s body was recovered in the morning hours Monday after authorities “couldn’t get to it (Sunday) night because of the dangerous water conditions,” said Cook County Sheriff Pat Eliasen. The body was transported to the Grand Marais hospital for coroner review. No foul play was suspected and the investigation is closed, the sheriff’s office reported.

The Rochester Post-Bulletin reported that Tim Walz's spokeswoman, Sara Severs, said the Walz family is "devastated" by the loss but had “profound gratitude” to those involved in the rescue and recovery efforts.

“Craig is remembered by his family, students and community as an amazing husband and father, and outstanding teacher, a passionate mentor and loving friend,” Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party Chairman Ken Martin in a statement. “The thoughts and prayers of all of us at the Minnesota DFL are with Craig’s wife Julie, his daughter Avery, and all of Rep. Walz’s family as they go through this unthinkable tragedy.”
