Possible death on Dowd Chute?

I ran Dowd chute today (Saturday) at around 3500 cfs I think. At the takeout some rafters told me that there had been a death earlier in the day. This is all the information that I have. Can anyone confirm?

We ran it today as well at about 2pm. We noticed a police car parked with its lights on, but no other emergency vehicles around so we didnt think much of it. Once getting back home we heard rumors of this but can't confirm.

BTW, check out lost and found for a paddle we lost in dowd today.

Condolences to the family. I had not that I know of ever met William, but do know people that do. I am sorry about the loss, especially since he leaves a family.
