(UPDATE)– The Iowa DCI reports three people were found dead this morning at the Maquoketa Caves State Park campground.
Officers found a camper was unaccounted for — and following a search of the area, they found the body 23-year-old Anthony Orlando Sherwin. Sherwin appears to have suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and there is no danger to the public.
Multiple news media reports indicate authorities are searching for a suspect after a shooting at the Maquoketa Caves State Park early this morning.
