Over the weekend, kayakers discovered the body of a man in the Boise River near the end of 48th Street in Garden City. While the Ada County Coroner’s Office has made an identification, the victim’s name is being withheld until family can be notified.
According to Coroner’s Office officials, an autopsy done on Monday, Sept. 28 showed the cause of death to be accidental drowning, and added that there were no signs of trauma, although the results of toxicology tests are still being waiting on.
The victim was between 30 and 40 years old, and was found in just more than 1 foot of water along a small island in the middle of the river. Because of its location, the Ada County Sheriff’s Office is handling the investigation.
