Body found in Lake Minatare, autopsy results pending

Posted: Updated:

An autopsy was conducted today on the body of Chris Miller, the Mitchell man who drowned at Lake Minatare on Sunday.

Miller died after becoming unconscious when he fell over the side of his boat and hit his head on the propeller.

A toxicology report will not be available for several weeks.

His body was found Thursday night, several hundred yards from where he disappeared on the east side of the lake.

Rescue crews worked diligently during the last five days to recover his body, but it was park visitors out in their boat who made the discovery.

People close to the case have commended the dedication of the recovery teams who worked in shifts over the last five days to find miller's body.

Miller was in town to visit his ailing mother and was just recently engaged before the accident.
