REVEALS NO FOUL PLAY IN DESTIN DEATH
An autopsy Sunday turned up no evidence of foul play in connection with the
death of a man whose body was found Saturday afternoon in a retention pond
behind Destin Commons.
The Okaloosa/Walton Medical Examiner says the autopsy findings are consistent
with drowning, however an official cause of death will not be confirmed until
toxicology reports are returned.
The body of the 26-year old white male was discovered face down in the
water, about fifteen feet offshore.
Investigators with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office have been able to determine the man’s identity, but his name will not be released until next-of-kin are located and notified.
