Green Bay man pulled from Kewaunee River identified

KEWAUNEE, WI (WTAQ) - Officials have identified the Green Bay man who died after the van he was driving plunged into a channel of the Kewaunee River Sunday morning.

According to emergency management officials, he is 40-year-old Shane Dillenburg. 

His 5-year-old son Dominic was also in the van and was rescued by campers who were near by.

Dillenburg’s body was found at around 7 p.m. Sunday. The van the two were riding in had plunged into the water about 11 hours earlier.

Police say the family was in town for a camping trip.

"This shakes everyone up in the city," Kewaunee Police Chief Frank Salentine told FOX 11. "There's a lot of information out there and we want to piece it together."

Salentine says his job over the next couple of days will be figuring out how everyone's stories fit in to what happened that morning.

That at some point, the van Shane was driving left the road, clipped a tree and hit a boat before plunging into the water; and that Dominic was rescued by two campers in town from Minnesota.

But even then, Salentine admits it may not give people the answer they would like to have - a definitive one.

"Was he occupied with something else? We just don't know and maybe we'll never know," said Salentine.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday. Salentine says he hopes it will provide some answers to this case.

Dominic was treated and released from an area hospital.

No word yet on funeral arrangements for his father.
