Polish man who vanished at party found dead in Lake Michigan

CHICAGO (AP) — A Polish man who vanished last weekend after attending a party at a Chicago bar was found dead early Wednesday in Lake Michigan, officials said.

Krzysztof Szubert, 21, was pulled unresponsive from the lake at the Oak Street Beach about 1:55 a.m. and pronounced dead at a hospital, Chicago police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said.

Police were investigating his death.

Szubert was last seen about 9:45 p.m. Saturday at the Howl at the Moon bar in Chicago's River North neighborhood. He had ridden there with a few dozen coworkers on a party bus to attend their company Christmas party, WLS-TV reported.[1]

Szubert, who was from Poland, had worked in information technology for Knapp Incorporated, a global tech company. He’d been in the U.S. since November, working on a project in Joliet while staying at a hotel.
