When we left the casino around 1:00 a.m. there was a body covered with a sheet in front of the casino, several police cars, ambulance and yellow crime tape marking off the scene. The ambulance left without the body. Any one know what happened?

We were up at a friends cabin and looked out the door around 1:30am to find several police cars taping off an area on the road. They walked up to the cabin to ask if we had scene or heard anything we had not. I asked what had happened and the officer said a car of young guys in a truck or SUV were driving to the casino, one of the riders was outside of the vehicle riding on the floor boards of the vehicle and apparently he fore some reason ended up in the road most likely fatally hitting his head on the pavement. His friends picked him up and put him back in the vehicle and drove to the casino apparently or perhaps not knowing that there friend was already most likely dead or fatally injured. That's all I know its spotty at best, I honestly do not know how accurate it is. I know from the police that there was alcohol involved he hit his head on the road (the rustic road that cuts over to WI 35 (there is a circled blood stain just past the bridge of the Yellow River.
Its a very sad and tragic ending of a young mans life.

Thank you for the info, no one seemed to know what happened at the casino. There was a black SUV with the passenger door open outside the casino in the valet area, where the body laid. Thanks again.

yes just to confirm,,me and my father came out of the st croix casino to find door guy from casino starting to do cpr on a what looked like a pretty young man, his shoe was missing, his knees were pretty bloody and he was not responding,at all i watched to see if his chest was rising,or any other signs of life and there was none,i asked the kid standing next to me if he had gotten into a fight and got knocked out and hit his head? he said no,, he was"car surfing",,truly sad ordeal,,,we watched as they covered him up..

I was at the Casino when it happened. Knew nothing was going on outside until I left. The body had been removed by then and I saw police cars, the yellow crime sceen tape, and others involved with the incident. I saw one young man in the back of a police car. He looked like he had been drinking and did not look like a happer camper at all! I thought he probably got arrested for DWI, then I thought something else had to have happened due to there being crime sceen tape. Heard several different versions of what happened. One version was totally different from what really happended. How old was the kid that passed away? What was the kid in the back of the police car charged with? Does anyone know?

I finally found out some information. I was able to find info on the inter-county leader The -leader.net. It was a 21 year old, Shawn Swanson, that died from St Paul. According to the news he died after falling onto the road from the top of a vehicle. A 21 year old driver being charged with homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle. More information is to follow on Wed.
