The autopsy done Tuesday morning, June 23, in Shasta County determined that the cause of death of a man found dead in the Klamath River on June 18 was consistent with fresh water drowning. 
The man’s fingerprints will be submitted to the California Department of Justice and FBI, according to a press release from the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office. If identification cannot be made using fingerprint comparison, then DNA testing will be used.
The Sheriff’s Office says the man appeared to have been in the water for several days, and no obvious cause of death was seen on the body. A plastic bag was found on his person, including a voter registration certificate from Mexico and a cell phone, the Sheriff’s Office reported.
