Two Helena men were found dead Monday morning after a boat crash on Hauser Reservoir near Devil’s Elbow.
According to Lewis and Clark County Undersheriff Brent Colbert, the sheriff’s office received a call about a welfare check on two overdue boaters just before midnight.
The men have been identified as 42-year-old Michael Rice and 51-year-old Craig Nelson of Helena. Colbert said both families have been notified.
With the Montana Women’s Prison re-opened for visitation, Governor Greg Gianforte visited the facility on Saturday to commemorate the occasion. The women’s prison is the first Department of Corrections facility to re-open with others following soon. Gianforte commented on the need for visitation.
