Police Investigation: Chief Nicholas Brinker’s statement
Tuesday morning saw the search pick back up, and it was then that Haas’ body was discovered at about 10:30 a.m. This is the unfortunate ending that we had not hoped for, the Wisconsin Dells police said, adding that “even though Matthew has been located, this is still an ongoing investigation, and we are still following up on information and leads that we have received.”
Based on the information and evidence that has been collected so far, foul play is not suspected. I stress that even though Matthew has been found, this is still an active investigation, and we are still following up on information and leads that we have received.
This is the tragic outcome that we had not hoped for. We at the Wisconsin Dells Police Department send our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Matthew, and we respectfully request that you honor their privacy in these tough times.
People’s condolences to Matthew Haas
Was hoping for a better outcome for the family and friends, so incredibly heartbreaking. So sorry for their loss!
So heartbreaking. But he was found so his Family and Friends may have closure. May God Bless them all and give them peace
My condolences to the family, it’s incredibly sad. So many men, especially those that have been drinking are found in bodies of water, especially in the Midwest. I wish these cases would start to be investigated more.

Rest In Peace, Matt. You were one of my best friends. This is heartbreaking news. I urge the police department to not rule out foul play as this was out of his character and feel toxic reports may prove he was drugged. All the events in this investigation don’t add up or make sense. I am glad for some closure. Hope your watching over all of us Matt
Sarah Ann Seegers dang .even if drugged ..??I just again..keep saying ..so they all just still wander out into cold weather and don’t feel ..it ? I’ve been drunk before I still felt the cold ..and id go back inside .and still go by the river and fall in ..my family member was that George from Stillwater at brians bar. I’m sorry… I still believe foul-smelling play here too ..no way George walked ..without his jacket and gloves in sub-zero -4 more with wind im sure ..and went over 3 miles on foot without going unconscious much sooner ..and dying closer to the bar… I’m just not buying b.s! I just think so many cover-ups. .excuses or corruption ..in many cases ..not all ..but some yes !!
My condolences to the family. For the city, as a citizen, how many victims does this bridge have to claim? Why haven’t there been modifications done, to ensure the safety of people? I just can not believe that all of these people magically fall. It is suspicious, to begin with, but after so many tragedies, what efforts will be taken to structure this bridge to be not so easy to fall/ jump from? Too many lives taken in the same suspicious manner.
Very unfortunate outcome and condolences to his friends and family. Great work by everyone involved in the search and recovery. Hopefully, his family can have some closure during this difficult time because of your efforts.
