A 23-year-old Independence man drowned over the Labor Day holiday after he jumped from a moving boat in Cartwright Cove at the Lake of the Ozarks.
The Missouri Highway Patrol identified him as Elijah H. Lindstedt.
Lindstedt, who was not wearing a floatation device, was passenger of a 1978 Lowe jon boat when he voluntarily jumped over the port side of the boat at about 2:50 a.m. on Monday, according to the Missouri Highway Patrol.
Lindstedt’s body was recovered from Cartwright Cove shortly after noon Tuesday.
