Deephaven Mayor Paul Skrede found dead in home
October 5, 2021
The small, tightknit community of Deephaven is stunned by the sudden death of Mayor Paul Skrede, who was found dead in his home last week after the city administrator called the police chief to do a welfare check.
"I think all of us are numb about it," Chief Cory Johnson said. "I'm still numb because he was not only my boss, but a friend."
Skrede, 75, was found on the floor of his Azure Road home Tuesday, but he could have been dead for as long as a week. Some sort of cardiac event caused the death and there was no indication of foul play, Johnson said.
