PROSSER, Wash. - The Benton County Coroner says preliminary autopsy results show the missing man from Grandview drowned in the Yakima River.
A fisherman found Miguel Gomez, 31, near the Wanawish Dam Sunday around 6:00 a.m.
A toxicology test is scheduled to see if Miguel was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
"Right now we're interested in any kinds of drugs, medication, alcohol and unusual substances to see how they might have been able to affect both his physical ability and his mental ability to cope with being in the water," explained Benton County Coroner John Hansens.
