Body Pulled from Housatonic ID'd as Missing Milford Kayaker

Jet Krumwiede went missing in Long Island Sound on Oct. 28.

The body found at the mouth of the Housatonic River in Stratford Monday has been identified as the missing Milford kayaker who disappeared in Long Island Sound the Sunday before Hurricane Sandy.

The Connecticut Post reports that the body has been identified as 21-year-old Jet Krumwiede of Morrell Ave.

Krumwiede had been missing since Oct. 28 when his kayak capsized near Charles Island in Milford, officials said. He was kayaking with another 21-year-old male, who Milford fire officials were able to locate and rescue before Sandy hit the coastline on Monday.

Both men were not wearing life jackets, according to reports at the time of the incident.

Krumwiede's body was discovered by workers involved in a dredging project on the waterway before local emergency officials arrived around 4 p.m. Monday, according to Stratford Deputy Police Chief Joe McNeil.

Interestingly...it is a state law that you MUST be wearing a life jacket after October 1st if you venture out on the sound.

This could have been avoided. Kayaking anytime of year in these waters is tricky. Wearing a vest is a must. Those wearing vests are usually experienced kayakers. Unfortunately even with this death people will venture out into these waters unprepared.

Whatever the circumstances, a family is mourning the loss of this young man. May the Lord wrap His arms gently around them as they work the the grief of a terrible loss.
