I just wanted to make sure no one thought it was our group.
They were pretty sure it was a heart issue. He was actively swimming, trying to leave the water and responsive and then he suddenly stopped and went face down.
They chose not to autopsy as they felt it didn't really matter.
Thanks for your help with the pics of the road to give something to base the melt rate on. I have way too many pics of the road that I have taken over the years, so you saved me a couple of trips from Bellevue to Cape Horn.
