BARABOO (WKOW) — Sauk County’s sheriff says the man suspected in a homicide at Devil’s Lake State Park is still at large.

Sheriff Chip Meister says emergency responders were called to the south side of the park Wednesday morning where a 24-year-old man was found dead on the Grottos Trail.

Meister says it appears the man was stabbed to death.

The sheriff says the suspect was last seen walking toward the south shore parking lot.

Authorities are looking for a suspect who they describe as a man, between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored head covering and dark-colored face covering. He left the scene walking west on the grottos trail toward the south shore parking lot, sheriffs officials say.

Investigators are asking anyone who was on the south side of the park near the parking area, grottos trail, or the railroad tracks between 11:00 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. on Wednesday and either witnessed the attack or observed something suspicious to call Sauk County Crime Stoppers at 1-888-847-7285.
