A marine from northern Wisconsin died on New Year's Day. The local paper, the Sawyer County Record, said he was out in the elements after being dropped off near his family's Hayward home.

According to his posted obituary, Matthew Raimer, 25, was a Hayward High School graduate and a marine stationed in Camp Pendleton in California.

The Sawyer County Sheriff's Office hasn't released any information to Eyewitness News, but the Sawyer County Record reported Raimer was home for the holidays and dropped off near his family's home by a local bar's "sober bus."

The family's residence is on Hamblin Street, but the newspaper said the call to authorities came from the next street over, Margaret Lane.

It was about 7:40 p.m. on New Year's Day, the Sawyer County Record reported, when a man called into the Sawyer County Sheriff's Office saying his door had been kicked in. The man's wife then called in again to say there was someone in their yard.

The sheriff's office and police responded. The newspaper said they found Raimer lying on the sidewalk in front of the home. He was dead and appeared to have been outside in the elements for a lengthy time.

Raimer joined the United States Marine Corp. in 2009 and served a tour in Afghanistan, according to his obituary.

The newspaper reported the investigation is ongoing.
