STEVENS POINT (AP) — Preliminary autopsy reports show a 21-year-old University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point student died earlier this month from accidental drowning.

Eric Duffey went missing March 3 after leaving Joe’s Bar in Stevens Point. He was found March 5 in the Wisconsin River.

Portage County Coroner Scott Rifleman released the preliminary autopsy results Friday.

Rifleman says authorities are still waiting for a toxicology report to determine how much alcohol was in Duffey’s system.
