The autopsies are complete on two elderly brothers, whose bodies were found last week at Brushy Creek State Recreation Area in Webster County. Seventy-three-year-old Frank Greenwood of Webster City and 78-year-old John Greenwood of Clarinda were found at the park south of the Brushy Creek Dam on Friday.
Frank Greenwood was found with the boat south of the Brushy Lake spillway and John Greenwood’s body was found a few hundred feet away in a wooded area. Webster County Medical Examiner Dr. Dan Cole said that based on the injuries of both men and the damage to the boat they have gone over the spillway last Thursday night. Dr. Cole said that Frank Greenwood died of head injuries and drowning while John Greenwood likely died from a combination of chest trauma and heart failure.
A search for the two men began Friday by local law enforcement authorities after the two did not return from their fishing trip. They were located at mid-afternoon on Friday.
