John Watterson,”The autopsy has revealed no injuries or trauma to Mr. Jones’ body, and the findings are consistent with drowning, There were no signs of criminal conduct or foul play found, and toxicology tests were performed however the results of those tests won’t be known for several weeks. The search for Mr. Jones has now officially ended, and at this time his death is considered to be an accidental drowning with no criminal charges expected.”
