Body Found at Stockton Lake Identified as Kurt Surber of Stockton

A 61-year-old man is dead after authorities say his vehicle and boat trailer ran him over on a Stockton Lake boat ramp.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol had originally investigated the death of Kurt Surber of Stockton as a homicide. However, after further investigation, they found no evidence of foul play.

The incident happened around 1:00 P.M. Thursday, April 23, at the Price Branch boat ramp, about 2 miles east of Stockton. Surber was alone at the time.

Surber’s body was found on the ground near the ramp, while his vehicle and boat trailer were found submerged and later recovered. His boat was found floating in the water.

Authorities determined that all evidence now points to Surber’s vehicle running him over, causing his death.
