DULUTH - The University of Minnesota Duluth student found dead in Chester Creek in Duluth on Saturday afternoon has been identified as Kyle Noble, 22, from Baudette, police said Sunday morning.
The St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office said the death does not appear to be suspicious at this time.
Noble was found floating in the creek near Chester Park Drive and Eighth Street about 1:15 p.m. Saturday. There is a deep gorge in that portion of Chester Creek underneath the bridge.
The incident is still being investigated and there was no information about how long Noble may have been in the water.
In October of 2004, a UMD student was found dead in the same area. An investigation found that the student likely fell about 40 feet from the cliff area there.
UMD released a statement Sunday offering its condolences on the death of Noble, who was a senior mechanical engineering major. The university was making preparations to provide “resources to help with the grieving process.”
